And the first instance of "two-shedding" has occurred!Two sheds if you look closely! The flag stones will be fine after a bit of Kirschner treatment. The hard standing in the centre, supporting the trampoline, used to be a garden pond, but we got rid when the grandkids started appearing, plus I couldn’t be arsed maintaining it!
I figured that was the reason but because I wasn't too sure if I could see rope in that photo I thought I'd ask.Yes, it prevents the tree from blown over by the wind. Standard practice for all the newly planted trees until they have had a few years to grow and the roots are firmly in the ground.
Do us a favour...can you buy a small family of those Big Green Egg barbecues and position them there. Would certainly give that bounder @Roadster280 something to think about!
