The boxes are painted and will be staked to the ground. We will take that pile of dirt near the addition to fill the boxes. My granddaughter helped her Papa paint the boxes and bench. My daughter bought me the stepping stones for Mother's Day and we decided to mount them to the block fence with liquid nail. They look lovely. I am going to add my son's family to the wall as well. This area is always evolving. I will post more as we add to it.
