Jeff and I stayed pretty busy over the holiday weekend adding a new flower bed to our patio! It turned out great! Jeff did most of the work and I just sat alongside him chatting and supporting!!
The first step was to dig out the area where we would be adding the new flower bed. Jeff added a layer of crushed limestone to create a flat base.
Then we added Belgium Retaining Wall Block from Menards. Jeff was very careful to make sure the first layer of block was completely level. This part was tedious!
After the wall and stairs were built we filled the beds with dirt. Then it was time to add colorful flowers and tiki torches!
I can't wait to add more flowers as the summer progresses!
The finished product!! I think it turned out great!!
