If you are searching for ideas regarding creating tiered garden walls then you can go through the following ideas.

Clearing of Area

As a part of this initiative, you need to clear the area of the garden where you are planning to develop the wall. If the place is already occupied with an existing divider then split it to create space for newly layered dividers. You have the chance of saving money if you can manage to reuse existing stones for this new venture. But even then, you will require additional stones for shading the face of the newly laid divider and to level them at from the top.

Digging of Footings

It is mainly for the purpose of strengthening divider of three feet. It is better to consult an experienced gardener or a landscape designer otherwise your newly constructed wall may tumble upon your plants and can damage them severely.

You need to pour this concrete within a wheelbarrow. With the help of a cultivator try to blend it like spread. You must not forget to use safety gears like face mask to prevent breathing dust particles. After you manage to prepare the concrete, pour it over a column of twelve inch depth for the purpose of stability.

Assembling of Wall

When you are about to assemble the wall, just ensure that it is straight and leveled. Firstly, you need to set up wood stakes or steel bars for the posts at each end of the divider and then start drawing the string line in-between them. It is important that your string is adequately leveled against any nearby structure or divider because only then you will be able to lay down your stones.

Wall Capping
