Wall pulls landscape together

Project: Private residence, Bettendorf, Iowa
Landscaper: The Green Thumbers Landscaping, Davenport, Iowa

This project was for a couple whose property was adjacent to a small lake and they wanted to make better use of the area. King’s Block supplied by Iowa-based King’s Materials was used to construct the retaining wall and planter beds. Sustainable plantings and an arbor make the addition look like it’s been there for years.

Price $17,000.
