Charisse planter box legs-boxes from Branch
A herm of Pan featuring one leg
scrolled steel chair legs
Buck’s pergolas on their way to Florida tomorrow-the roofs needed shipping legs. What could give you a leg up designing a pot or a garden or a landscape? What would help choosing a container or a sculpture for the garden? Do you have a tree to plant that needs a leg up out of a non-draining soil? Look at the legs. How you choose to interact with the ground is really important.
The pictures of the details of the construction of these massive pergolas is not just for our records. We will send a complete set of pictures to the contractor who will be charged with assembling the structures once they get to Florida. Though I have described this Branch project yesterday with few pictures and few words, the actual length of time and the attention to detail has been serious and long. At the risk of boring you beyond all belief, these pictures help to better tell the whole story.
finishing the roof
Once both pergolas were finished, cradle structures needed to be built for the roof structures. They are too wide to lay flat. The maximum width of a flatbed truck is 8.5 feet. We are over the legal transport dimension limit. Not a problem. Terry, Michael, Sal, Dave, Enrique, Owen, Scott, Steve, Geri, Dan, Max, and Buck worked together to bring a big idea for the landscape to life. Start to finish. Am I happy with the result? Truly? Yes.
