I actually started this project last year. I had to tear down a shed and build the bed for the rose garden but the results this year made all that work last year worth it.

the thumbnail image is this year with the Iris in bloom and roses starting to open up, the others are from last year and show the process of building it up to planted, as well as a pair of landscape stairs i put in for my wife.

Nice job! Obviously well worth the effort of creating it. Be sure to post more pictures when all the flowers are in bloom.

I wasn’t so sure it was worth it last year! I like it much better this year when all I had to do was prune the roses and weed a little bit.

Plants, stone and wood make such a lovely combination. Well done. All the photos show your rose garden in the shade. My understanding is that roses love the sun. Does your rose garden get good sun for most of the day?

The rosses have full sun for most of the morning then partial shade through the rest of the day, they still get their rays while being shielded from the worst of the Texas blistering

Sounds like you have their sunlight needs all figured out. Please post photos when they are all in bloom. Roses are so beautiful.
