Cement paving blocksIMHO, our health needs a “good food” foundation. Likewise, my Garden Tower needs a firm foundation. The southeast corner of my site is the only location with beneficial sunshine. FYI: Smooth cement because my Tower (full of soil) did not roll well on cement paving blocks. (See my 12”x 18”x 2” patio paving blocks?)

My extra busy, extremely talented, handyman arrived about three-ten. I’m so grateful for his help!! “We” worked until dark!!

Smiley face it's a secretThe cost of that little patch of concrete will remain a secret. I’m eager to roll my Garden Tower into the sunshine of that corner of my site. A blessing (or a curse?); my yard is very shady.

Form was removedCelebrate with me?! The form was removed; fill dirt and rocks around the edges. ~~ Five large cement blocks were picked-up and laid-down so level and straight. I’ll need all this space for veggie planters.
