I think that would also make a cool water garden.

I would love to do a water/pond garden.
I think if a person were to make the concrete in some organic shape, and
create a current at one end, it would be like a river....

Back in the early 70's used to be a Chinese restaurant in Houston that
indeed had a "river" ("banks" elevated about 2' above grade) meandering
through the entire floor plan, complete with fish, waterfall and current.

You had to cross a small bridge to get from one side to the other.

That would be pretty neat.
I was in a restaurant in Sausalito and the roof moved out of the way, and
you could see the stars....
It was quite a large restaurant, and I was not aware of it......
pretty neat....it got cool quick, and then it slid closed....but all the
warm air left and a nice coolness was
atmospheric...

At least 50 years ago (mid '60's) there was a restaurant called
"The Kapok Tree" in the Tampa/St Pete area.

The bldg was built around the tree and was a tropical theme.

The customers were protected inside the bldg and the animals
were outside but still inside a fenced in area.

Understand it went bankrupt 15-20 years ago but it is still around
awaiting someone to bring it back.

Hope somebody does, it was a neat place.

Just found this.

I found these planters a really neat idea. I was wondering how they
have come out finished and planted. Any progress? Any new photos?

Hello,
I do not have a finish picture....darn it.
I had this one just prior to paver stone/deck install.
It came out real nice.

John,

Thanks for the reply and additional photo. Real nice work.

My husband and I have been trying to figure out an option for our yard
that will not only look nice but protect our house and provide
planting area. I really like how you did this, especially the texture.
We are giving this idea serious consideration.

Bummer you didn't get a complete finished photo, but I appreciate what
you did get the time to take.
