Byron Driveway Farm
Another application of our lumber by Matt Nardella. Below he explains his project:
We have an unused driveway in front of our office that only gets used occasionally to load and unload materials. It is pretty useless. After recent water main work under our street the City even repoured the driveway that they tore up to install a new sidewalk ramp.
As part of our reclamation of the urban right-of-way project we have installed a raised planter bed, designed and built by moss with 100% reclaimed framing lumber from the Rebuilding Exchange. Now flourishing are tomatoes, basil, oregano, thyme, brussels sprouts, strawberries, and sage. Construction and current photos after the break.
