Since I’m relatively new to tumblr, I wanted to show you some different parts of my garden and some of the projects we’ve worked on since we’ve been here. So here’s the first of my “Garden Tour” posts.
Probably my most favourite place in the garden is our fire pit. Last night we had a few people over for dinner around the campfire, so it seems a good place to start the tour.
We had a spot cleared amongst the gum trees, and a pad levelled by an excavator. I love the track leading down to it with the sign at the entrance.
We built the pit in the middle of the clearing with retaining wall blocks. There’s one level of blocks under the ground, and then two additional levels above. It creates a great barrier from the fire when there’s kids around, and is also a good spot to rest the camp ovens.
It took another year or so, but we then built a “bar” that we use to serve food, with a shelf underneath for storage. It was built in a weekend with the help of our neighbours who often join us for a drink (or two) around the fire.
