Fair Install

Volunteers, please meet us 9AM at the Arco station on Via del Valle and Jimmy Durante.  I have three parking permits to share.  Wear clothes to get dirty in. Bring gloves and shovels if you have them. We should be done by Noon

We are moving dirt around so that the set bases and framing can be installed tomorrow.  This will begin at 2pm.  You are also welcome to help the carpenters too.

If any one wants to help on Sunday afternoon, please let me know.  I am thinking 1 to 3pm to put the dirt back into place.


Friday, May 21st 2:30pm - At this moment, I am waiting for to find out where we stand with the sets.  If they are not ready yet, then I will build them myself tonight!!

We can get somethings done tomorrow at the site, such as covering the white lattice with the brown shade cloth. And sculpt the left side where there are no sets.

Here is the installation order:

1. install set bases - move dirt out, drop in bases, cover with blocks and dirt as weight
2. prep water feature area - move dirt, plumb hoses, drop in troughs, use dirt to level and fill,
add pump to lower trough, make sure pump cord reaches plugs behind sets, pond line upper troughs,
drop in pebble screen for lowest trough and add pebbles, hide pond liner with cobble stones and pavers, add paver bridge
3. create terraces
4. stack ledger stones to create water fall into hidden trough ( pebbles hide trough and water pump )
5.  use stones to emphasize terrace effect, boulder to do the same but arrive May 27th
6.  create flagstone path and gathering space
7.  create paver patio
Set uppers can be installed at any time during the above 7 steps
8. Move in trees
9. Begin Planting
10.  add other decorative elements
11. Attach Living Wall - may add drip lines this is TBD on time?
12. Trim Living Wall - this is a foam core trim to hide plastic edges of Living Wall
