could we please have some advice on our front yard design? We want to incorporate a raised brick planter box into our front yard design. However, we have some awkward geometry to work with because the angles of our boundaries are not 90 degrees. Could you please offer some suggestions/advice on possible locations for the planter box and mailbox? I am happy to increase or decrease the size and geometry of the planter box. I have included a sketch of our current idea and some photos of the look we are trying to achieve. The site is relatively flat.
Also, our annual rainfall is about 400mm (which is relatively low). Would you suggest adding a drainage system to the planter box that connects to the stormwater? Or, is there another more suitable drainage system?
Thank you in advance.
