Veranda Project: Perimeter Masonry (Phase 2)

Tuscan Veranda Project: Perimeter Masonry (Phase 1)

Project begins: January 2016
After a year of no progress, the Perimeter Masonry phase of the Tuscan Veranda Project continues. The first task in the project involves a crescent planter around a Desert Willow tree. For this, I built a reinforced footing to support the brickwork that composes the crescent.

The planter took a few weeks to build because I only had time to process about 19 bricks a day.

After completion of the crescent, I ran schedule 40 PVC from the water source to the step planters.

From the step planters, more schedule 40 to the crescent planter.

Project completed: March 2016
The planter required quite a bit of garden loam, of which I had about 4 cubic yards delivered. After filling the planter with the loam, I planted five dwarf rose plants.
