Awesome Richard. As I have watched you install your orchard/yard, I have often wondered if the design is a long term dream/plan that you have had. You certainly have me thinking about how to improve my orchard and surrounding area. Thanks, Bill
Richard, when you flood the basins, will it cause a problem with the mulch? You may have to rake them every time.
They’re A/C 9W 6500K compact fluorescent, switched from an indoor cabinet that will also house irrigation controllers.
Yes, as you probably remember I created design plans (w/ Adobe Acrobat) prior to planting, including space for the golf course, the location of planter beds, etc. [quote=“Johnnysapples, post:183, topic:9567”]

The mulch layer is 3-4 inches thick. It rises and falls with the water level and the tree rings keep it from escaping.
Whees the fountain pictures?!? I want a putt putt course now!!!
They’re still being powered by extension cord. The underground wires have been pulled to adjacent conduit boxes and hopefully will be fully connected next week.
Gee but it’s great to be back home!
Your dating yourself
Home is where I’d rather be
Thank you for the banana pup (and grape vine) and the tour of your home and garden! The photos you’ve posted do not do them justice. I was very impressed with the range of fruit trees and other plants that you have. I learned a lot and I very much appreciate the time you gave up this morning. I look forward to seeing your place once everything is complete!
Thank you again,
Incoming solar …
My new toy for tracing wire bundles through underground conduit.
I LOVE ALL OF YOUR NEW LITTLE TOYS THAT MAKE UP ONE BIG BEAUTIFUL NEW TOY.
Are you going to have a soda pop, lemonade and ice cream stand to go with the golf course and orchard?
Glad to see you have the requisite orange golf balls and green colored putters. That makes it a miniature golf course!!
That looks great, superb job!
Everything looks so nice Richard. I can just read the dogs minds, this is a silly way for us to play ball.
Yes, but wouldn’t you like to come back as one of his dogs?
Most of the holes are “paw” two.
