Now It's a Planter Box...

Yeah, we realized that unless it was going to be an actual spiral, the project wouldn't work, so we went for more of a planter bed/box instead. Here it is ready for me to figure out the plumbing and then add the dirt and plants.

That's next weekend, as I'm beat! Now, in the photo the blocks appear to be unlevel but that's not the case at all! I'm surprised at how well the "strings and stakes" method we used actually worked.

And while we were digging around for this project, I unearthed this old sprinkler head.

You may not be able to tell from the photo, but the elbow is actually clear plastic! How odd.


  1. What types of plants are you planning to put in the bed? That would make a great herb garden!

    1. That was the plan, but now we're thinking of an artichoke and a bird of paradise, surrounded by minor herbs like thyme/mint/etc. I don't get much say in which plants go in the front yard... ;)
