Construction and Hardscape

Welcome to the Construction and Hardscape Gallery.  This is the place to look at shots of the things that I’ve designed, built and installed, and things that I am continuing to design, build and install, in my garden.  You’ll see pics of the big arbor/trellis system that I designed, built, and installed.  You’ll also see some shots of the limestone planter and retaining wall system I’m designing/building/installing (I finished the first section back in November of 2020, and picked it back up in October of 2022).  You’ll see some shots of the electrical distribution I’m implementing (all of the wire is being pulled through heavy-wall, rigid steel conduit) for all of the things that require power (deck outlets, hot tub, septic overflow pump, waterfall/pond pump and heater) in the garden.  I’ve written extensively here on The Renaissance Garden Guy about my garden construction and hardscape projects.  You can find info and pictures in the “Garden Construction and Hardscape” category here on the site.  To read about my arbor/trellis system (and how to build such a structure in your own garden), click here, and follow the suggested links for individual component how-to articles.  To learn more about how I built my stacked and mortared limestone planter (and how to build one of your own), please click here.  And to get your mind around the method to my madness (and the madness itself), please feel free to read “My Garden Design Scheme.”  As usual, I’ll be adding more pics in this gallery on an ongoing basis, so please feel free to check back and see them.  It’s said that a picture is worth a thousand words.  If that’s the case, maybe these shots will be helpful in the planning and building of your own garden structures.  Cheers, and Happy Gardening!

04-22-24. Want to know how these big containers and this pile of lumber will translate into a pretty amazing aboveground home for an equally amazing English climbing rose? The next pic offers a clue.

Voila! I whipped this trellis up on 04-22-24. It represents the first completed element of my English climbing rose's new home. I've got lumber and other building materials stockpiled from years back, just so I can build stuff like this when the spirit moves me. More pics will follow as I get this whole thing built.

Electricity makes a garden show AND go. This collage, and the next one, show the trenching, pipe run directions/terminations, and device/splice box locations for my garden's electrical distribution.
Black metal garden arch, photographed 04-30-23, assembled and anchored with four concrete footings, by yours truly. A Clematis H.F. Young grows up one side of this arch, and a Clematis Jackmanii grows up the other.
