Barn Foundation Terraced Garden

The project I am currently working on is a series of retaining walls for a terraced garden.  Much of the material being used was once the foundation of a barn located on site.  Some of the old walls remain, and have been incorporated into the garden design.  Additional materials include cobbles and boulders from a gravel pit, and custom cut/split granite slabs for wall tops.  To date, two 50’ lengths of wall have been completed and are ready for backfill.  The third, lowest, wall is partially complete.

A. S. Clark and Sons have been instrumental in site preparation and delivery of materials.  Ted Hetzel has been a stalwart worker, laboring alongside me under the hot summer sun.

    Thanks, David.
    The cap stones were cut and split by Williams Stone Co. http://www.williamsstone.com
