At this home we put in a terraced bed that runs along the side walk. It’s made from limestone with mortar joints, creating a sturdy structure to hold the growth of the veggies. This ties in with the front of the house, which is stone at the base. This bed will provide annual vegetables, and has been planted with spring vegetables to get it started.
Stay tuned, as we’ve began clearing the grass behind it as well to make way for the rest of the project, with perennial bushes and berries, and a mazus ground cover in place of the grass!
