Landscaping and Reconstructing an Existing Backyard Planter

This project was to reconstruct an existing planter.

It began as a homemade planter built with natural, irregular rock. It had become overgrown and an eyesore for the homeowners.

Our client liked the idea of the shape and concept of the planter area, but it needed a bit more curb appeal.

This job was in their backyard that we could not access with our equipment.

The first step: On day one the crew had to make some temporary adjustments to make room for our equipment to enter.

Together with the client, Blake was able to design a more visually appealing concept.

Building the planter up helped showcase the landscaping of the yard.

Limestone block was chosen to add clean lines and create contrast.

For the walls we started with a 12” footer. This gave the blocks a strong foundation and will reduce future mortar cracking.

We also added some smaller borders and planters around some oak trees on the opposite side of the yard.
