August, 2004 - editor.  The use and construction of planter boxes as separating walls in the cool thai house, Pattaya, Thailand.  Paving stone path walkway construction.

A couple of neat add-on projects; planter boxes and a the entry walkway, done from paving stones.

Planter Boxes

This is an add-on that really finishes the house off.  Along one side of the patio there is a thin set of planter boxes which double as wall between the patio and the carport.  Then in front there are two lower level planter boxes to form a natural plant wall. 

The row of bricks is attached to the wall with strips of rebar for strength.  (24-Jun-04)

Paving Stone Walkway

Paving stones like these come in various shapes and colors.  In this case we use sand to level the area in front of the patio that was for the entry path.  Then the paving stones were placed on top of the sand to complete the walkway.

Fine sand is leveled.  (31-Jul-04)
The paving stones are set in place.
