The Making of a Landscape Berm

[tps_header][/tps_header]Fear is something you need to overcome when planning anything. Especially something you feel you don’t know allot about. It holds your creativity at a stand still. Once you free yourself of fear, your creative juices start flowing. I know this because it happened to me when I started helping my hubby plan the landscaping of the home we live in. A job that had always been solely his before.[/tps_header]

We wanted a kidney shape berm between our sidewalk and driveway. To do so, we  first made two circles by using the string and “pencil” method. Our “pencil” being the inverted marking can of spray paint which was attached to a round post in the center of each of the circles with string. Once the circles were drawn, we painted two arches connecting the two circles to make the kidney shape, as you can see in the photo above.
