    How was the stone purchased? Did you but the whole pallet, or just the stone removed from it?

    Nice work Benj and Ethan. Itโ€™s fun to see the project from beginning to end.

    Great work! Beautiful! I had started on my smaller project then took a break & found your video! Needless to say, I realized I was doing things all wrong! Stopped where I was and headed to the home store for some gravel. I do have a question about what to do if your area is uneven, as in, one side is about 15 inches lower. I’m guessing I need to start at that side & work my way around so the top layer of stone is level. Any tips would be greatly appreciated!

    Well done,looks great!

    Great job. I have a similar, but much smaller planting bed our landscapers put in front of our front porch. Now, after 10 years, the soil is washing out one side. Iโ€™m not sure how to fix without dismantling the whole side nor do I know if itโ€™s something best left to the professionals to repair or if it an easy diy fix. With mature Hostas, Ivy, Creeping Jenny, weed barrier and bark mulch, I donโ€™t know how to go about fixing without damaging the plants. Any thoughts?

    Love the tutorial and your positive attitude! Showed me I donโ€™t need a bunch of fancy equipment to build something pretty. I think Iโ€™ll go ahead and pull the trigger on this project now. God bless!

    Haha nice design and job well done!! Ben u r acting like the Egyptian Task Master of the Moses time to poor Ethan!!!! Please pay Ethan Sleepy Biden’s new minimum wages $15s /hr.!!!! ๐Ÿ˜œ And I will see if you r still in the gardening business!!! ๐Ÿ˜œ

    One more Idea to earn more money make Ethan dance to house owners.. A good dance from his school. Probably you will get more money for bringing school dance to house owners door step!!! ๐Ÿ˜œ

    Any way.. It was a good video. I am happy to see Ethan working with you n learning gardening. Love you Ethan for all your good gardening work!! And God bless you!!! . ๐Ÿ’ ๐Ÿ˜‡๐Ÿ˜‡๐ŸŽ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

    Ethan is the Hero of the day!!! ๐Ÿ˜œ

    Ben & Ethan: you guys gave me some great insights into my DIY project, it would be cool to see what it looks like now. Iโ€™m curious to know how you keep weeds from growing between & around the rocks?

  15. NIKLAVEE on December 6, 2021 at 12:59 pm

    Beautiful work!

  16. Katherine Kinnaird on December 6, 2021 at 1:01 pm

    Great video.

  20. Sally Boothe on December 6, 2021 at 1:06 pm

    Nice wall! It will be there until they want it moved…. which should be forever ๐Ÿ˜Š it reminds me of the one I had built around the front of my house. On the higher end we planted a nice white Dogwood tree. I love it! Iโ€™m sure the homeowners are going to LOVE theirs too

  21. Nicole Schmidt on December 6, 2021 at 1:06 pm

    Hi Benji,

    Thank you for your tutorial. I am planning on constructing my own flat stone walls around my own landscaping. What did you use for the fill gravel? I was considering 3/4 inch minus gravel.

  22. The Kraemer Life on December 6, 2021 at 1:07 pm

    Ben (and Ethan), that’ looks really nice! Well done.

  23. Rami P on December 6, 2021 at 1:08 pm

    No mortar no footer hmm, everyone works different ig I prefer something that will last something solid.

  29. Southern Style Lawn Care on December 6, 2021 at 1:19 pm

    Looks good. How many pallets was that?

  30. Margie & Alfie on December 6, 2021 at 1:19 pm

    Exactly! Work is all about havin some fan.
    That’s the best way to motivate oneself โฃ๏ธ๐Ÿ’ฏ

  31. Tom Denton on December 6, 2021 at 1:20 pm

    lay the stone into slope not along slope.

  32. Kathrine Kerns on December 6, 2021 at 1:24 pm

    Very nice. I think you guys used every muscle in your back, legs, arms etc. That was a lot of work.

  33. Femineity on December 6, 2021 at 1:26 pm

    Very nice looking!
    Is that flagstone and what’s the cost of materials for a job like that?

  34. Heather Anne Kennedy on December 6, 2021 at 1:27 pm

    I truly believe that the ability to work is one of God’s greatest blessings! To do so with an attitude of JOY while striving for EXCELLENCE is truly the very best way to tackle any work! Beautiful job on the stone border – it’s going to be amazing filled with plants!!!

  35. Sea Trout on December 6, 2021 at 1:28 pm

    Good stone , bad building!

  36. Melissa Meyer on December 6, 2021 at 1:28 pm

    How much rock did you use? And what is that rock called so I can ask for it by name?

  37. Pam Pilgrim on December 6, 2021 at 1:29 pm

    Hi, Benj! Excellent tutorial! You taught me a lot. Looks amazing.

  38. John McCardell Jr. on December 6, 2021 at 1:32 pm

  39. jesse dalbec on December 6, 2021 at 1:33 pm

    About how much did this cost? Iโ€™m wanting to something very similar and no idea on how to figure up cost

  40. Daily Dose Of Dan on December 6, 2021 at 1:33 pm

    I enjoyed this lesson. You guys did such a good job with such ease. Great work. God bless you two.

  43. kyle budd on December 6, 2021 at 1:36 pm

    Do no build walls like this. At min the base rock long side of stone needs to go front to back of bed not side to side. Voids need to be filled with like the same rock as wall is being built, largest rocks should be used at base, and absolutely never dry stack a wall with out gravel as a back fill.

  44. Okanagan Gardener and Forager on December 6, 2021 at 1:37 pm
