Earthbag Building Techniques

Using this simple method and renewable resources, you can build a beautiful bench and arbor for a cozy backyard retreat.

Earthbag Bench Foundation
To create a curved bench, set a stake about 56 inches from where you want the front of the bench and tie a string to it. Make a knot in the string 56 inches from the post. As you move the string, the knot makes an arc determining the shape of the bench.
