Jerry's Raised Beds and Steps


Doing a hard landscaping project in your garden can be a difficult task. But when your garden lies in the picturesque hills of the Apennines in Italy, it adds a new level of complexity. Thankfully, WoodBlocX is easy to transport over the international pallet network due to its modular design. That means, no matter where you are’ based, ordering and delivery is the same process.

The challenge for Jerry was to turn the rough and crumbling hillside, which now consists of a mix of concrete and hardpack, into an attractive dining and entertainment space. Our designers worked with Jerry on a few design options and eventually settled on 7 large steps that elevate the bench with an adjacent large two-tier planter. It was now of paramount importance that everything fit like a glove, since Jerry had a small window to build the new pool area, and it was not that far from home’ quite easy to get some replacement BlocXs on site.

The measurements were checked and rechecked before the BlocXs were picked and the pallets shipped. The full shipment arrived within 5 business days on site, and Jerry and the team could begin construction immediately. Everything pre-cut and the layered WoodBlocX instructions set up there to keep them on track.

The transformation at Jerry’s Garden is a great example of how a modular and individual design solution can save not only time and effort, but also how a little ingenuity in the design process can really open a room and turn a garden into a living space. And in the warm climates of the Italian mountains, why wouldn't they want to go as much as possible in the garden!

"It took about 8 days or so and it completely changed the garden, we are excited about it. Thank you for planning the steps and organizing the delivery to Italy, it was a hassle-free project" - Jerry Agass
