Isn't this organic natural wall interesting? I would have liked to watch it being built. This type of wall is very prevalent in Santa Fe, but walls are found around property throughout the state. It may just be the style, but I was told they were built to keep out rattlesnakes. I have lived in NM for 45 years and have never seen a rattlesnake.
The Russian Olive tree inside the wall is messy and thisrty. It doesn't belong in the desert and is considered by some to be a nuisance. Yet it is a very beautiful tree with an incredible fragrance in the spring.
