This story began in the January 1987 issue of Concrete Construction with an account of the design of the garden structure and its plantings. The conclusion brings construction details such as the mix and the sculpturing-shaping process for the garden's structure and furnishings. THE CONCRETE MIX The formulas for concrete mixes are determined by the purpose for which a structure is to be used. Concrete (mortar) for benches, steps, slabs, stepping stones and planters was made from a mixture of five parts river or stucco sand to one part cement. The pools required a richer mixture to make them hold water. For the nonporous sides and bottoms, a mix of four parts sand to one part cement was used. I avoided using mixed aggregates (mixtures of sand and small rock that make concrete stronger and more economical) because the pebbles make contour troweling very difficult. Since no forms (molds) were used, except for the overhang of the waterfall, the mixtures were kept as dry as practical. MAKING THE BENCHES The benches were certainly the most difficult to build because their nearly vertical sides tended to collapse. The first step in constructing them was to build a core that would later be covered with concrete. This core acted as an armature to give stability to the shape while the concrete was still soft. I built the core by stacking rock, old stucco, old bricks, tin cans, bottles or nearly anything except wood. When the size and shape of the core approached within 2 to 4 inches of the intended dimensions of the bench, it was dampened and the spaces between the surface rocks and other materials were packed with concrete (mortar). I then covered the top with a coat of concrete at least 2 inches thick. SLABS AND STEPPING STONES Large slabs and stepping stones were poured in place directly on the ground. Each was at least 3 inches thick and did not exceed 6 feet across, thus avoiding the stress that would require reinforcing wire.
