Project Description:

This system was installed in a backyard with a significant slope and terracing in some areas.  The layout of the system was customized based on this terrain and the stands for the tables were adjusted to ensure that the tables were stable and level with minimal impact on the land itself.  High winds in the area required the building of supports for the plants within the system.
