Native Edge Landscape
Landscape Architects & Designers
Crestview traditional-landscape


With the up-and-coming neighborhood of Crestview changing daily, these clients wanted to finish off their remodel by updating their landscape to fit their style, and the modernized neighborhood. With their home already having some modern/contemporary lines and design elements, it was easy to expanded and shadow that within the landscape. By creating predominate features like these metal box planters, we needed to keep the plant pallet simple, and chic. We used a pallet of very architectural plants, low maintenance native plants, and topped it off with a top dress of Decomposed Granite for a pop of color and sense of durability.

Native Edge Landscape
Thank you for your interest! We do not have exact plans for the base - however this is created out of a simple Cedar 4" x 4" post construction. The horizontal post are notched where the intersect with the vertical post, and vice versa in order to achieve the flush facade.
The Rain Barrel (55 gallon drum) sits on the horizontal 4" x 4" posts, the vertical posts are notched on the inside corners in order to create a snug fit against the rain barrel, and act as a brace.
The Cedar posts have also been sealed to withstand the environment.

Please let us know if you have any further questions!
Thank you!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

3. Use a rain barrel to catch water for use in the garden. This simple addition to your home can save you many gallons of water each year, depending on how much rainfall you get in your region.4. Seek out drought-tolerant and native plants. Especially important in the southwest and western U.S., and anywhere drought is a problem, choosing the native plants can reduce the need for frequent watering.Guides to gardening in your region of the U.S.
Marianne Lipanovich added this to Just Add Water: Rain Barrel Magic
Experiment with the look. At first sight, this rain barrel makes its presence known as it perches on its custom wooden stand. Though the mix of materials might seem like it would clash, it works well with the surrounding wood and stone facade of the house, architectural plantings and ground cover.
