Thanks for the question.... frost can easily reach 42" in Minnesota. We install 48" footings under all of pergolas. In the case where a pergola footing is installed in a raised bed or planter the 48" is installed at ground level plus the depth of the bed. In the image above the raised planter is about 20" making the total footing in the planter about 70" deep.... welcome to Minnesota.

link to an example of the footing in a similar application -

The raised planter is constructed of retaining wall block. A standard crushed stone base was installed.

Thank you for the question and best wishes! ~ Glenn!

I likethe pavers and the build up planter boxes. I think it would be a great idea to have this to define a space and then could also plant herbs around the dining table to make the area smell good and keep the dogs out of it.

A bit more in the arts and crafts style. Don't like the fact that they emerge out of raised planters - the thing looks like its flying rather than grounded.
