Strawberry Pyramid. Build a pyramid planter for your strawberries. Each hole in the concrete block will hold more than enough soil for a strawberry plant. Wooden pyramid options I've seen waste too much soil under unused space. Once the plants grow in you will have a nice strawberry terrace effect. If you just make a border of blocks and don't terrace out the center, fill it with soil to plant some herbs or veggies. - Love it! This is the closest I have seen to what I want!
Gravel around the foundation for drainage, plant shrubs along to help soak up water. Like the idea of the large rock to prevent erosion from the water spicket. Maybe a few cool pots or barrels with plants too? I like :)
Improve the look of your backyard by repeating the same colors, shapes, or plant varieties. More landscaping tips: http://www.bhg.com/gardening/landscaping-projects/landscape-basics/easy-landscaping-ideas/
