Planter boxes on fault trail overlooking Tyson Lagoon

Hardik Gupta,
Troop 154, Fremont

In my Eagle Scout project, I started by planning how to transform the overgrown area at Tule Ponds. I envisioned the planter boxes I wanted to make and outlined the tasks needed to achieve this transformation. After planning, my team and I physically cleared the space, removing weeds, bushes, and debris to create a clean area. We then used an auger rented by Cresco who were kind enough to let us rent it for free to make 1.5 ft deep holes for the posts. Then using gravel to level the posts, they were stuck in place using concrete. Planks were then cut to measurement and attached to the posts in order to complete the 2 planter boxes. Once the boxes were ready, mulch was spread around the planter boxes and soil was placed into the planter boxes. This project took 3 weeks to complete over 4 workdays to complete it fully and all materials were bought from Home Depot.
