Park Lane Puddingstone Garden

In this small front yard space, we were challenged to create a self-sustaining intensive food garden with local materials. We salvaged chunks of Roxbury puddingstone, the unique local bedrock, to build a raised bed for annual gardening. We are training grapes to grow in the warm microclimate of the south-west facing stone wall along one edge of the space and installed a blueberry/pluot guild in the back. Behind the fence we created a battery of elevated rain barrels with a custom manifold that increases the pressure and capacity of the system, allowing it to feed a micro-drip irrigation system and eliminating the need to use city water.
