The first block of Lae St has a big impact on the "curb appeal" of Kuau Bayview so we feel it is worth investing some time, energy, and money into doing it right once and for all. Volunteers are currently cleaning up the overgrowth that has become unmanageable. The traffic signs have already been liberated. Maui County even gave us a new Pedestrian Xing sign.
With owner approval, we plan to build a 3 foot rock retaining wall running 200 feet from Lot 30 to join the rock wall at Hana Hwy. The wall will cost $10,000 which translates to $16.67 per cubic foot. The going price for rock walls is $30 per cubic foot so this is an amazing deal. It will be paid for with the money saved by not paying landscapers.
We are considering Gold Dust Crotons and red Ti plants for along the top of the rock wall. We are open to suggestions anyone may have. We definitely want something without thorns that will provide privacy for the owners behind and beautify the view from the street. You can offer your ideas on the KB Blog.
