When the Bay Street Biergarten was in the process of opening their doors, they knew one essential component for drawing a great Charleston, SC crowd was to have a great outdoors area. They need a fun atmosphere, a nice place to relax, and some space for adult games like Boccee Ball.
R.E.A.L. was contracted to do the landscaping at the Biergarten after having proved ourselves reliable with prior work. The contract was ours because of a few factors.
First, our commitment to excellence. Second, our ideas to make the plans work. And Third, our prices matched with the quality of work we bring to the table. We offered the best bang for their buck when it came to the outdoors landscaping.
The Biergarten needed a retaining wall surrounding a small patch of unpaved ground near a tree in the center of the parking lot. This is where they planned on installing a bike rack for the many bicycling guests they expected to have.
This was a last minute add-on that we were able to spontaneously include. This was not a part of the original plans, but we skied with our knees bent and added it in to spruce up the bike rack.
We wanted to add a small retaining wall in order to level the grade of the bed. Since this was going to be a highly trafficked area, it had to look good.
This was mainly for the bike rack, but they didn’t want the soil washing away when it rained. The half-circle near the bike rack was done with red clay bricks to match the rustic entry way.
Bocce Ball Court
Another essential component of the Biergarten’s outdoor feng shui was to have a Bocce Ball Court installed. They wanted a zero maintenance court and we provided an artificial turf as opposed to natural grass that would require upkeep.
Instead, for the Bay Street Biergarten landscaping, artificial turf made more sense. First we had to excavate the pit and then we brought in crushed granite (paver base) to lay down as a base. After the base was laid we had to rake, level, and tamp the course to make it level. The finishing touch (and most time consuming) was to cut and lay pieces of artificial turf to make a seamless course the finished product.
The Biergarten is located at 549 East Bay Street, Charleston, SC 29403. They serve good food and craft beer in a fun indoor/outdoor atmosphere.
