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.
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.
