No plans to raise it or extend it. We built it when there were no bottle banks round here and the shops didn't give money back on our favourite Oz and Kiwi wine bottles so it was a recycling initiative - much scoffed at by OH and the chappy who laid the terrace but it has proven its worth since and they love it.
A tip for anyone considering building one is to make sure you have a good foundation of broken bricks and stones levelled out with concrete . You then just lay your straight sided, high shouldered bottles with no fixing except something to hold them at either end. Back fill with soil from the bed it's holding up. Top with something to sit on (recycled marble slabs from fireplaces here) and fix them with cement. The railway sleeper on the short wall is held there by gravity.
