BBQ area under sails

Postby Bromjewel » Fri Jul 06, 2007 12:42 pm

I have just had a look around my garden to find a 'feature' and decided my shade sails would be the most dominant feature in the garden. This is a perfect spot for growing my broms!

Thanks all. Its still a work in progress. I plan on extending the garden beds (one day) and put in some more palms/cycads. We also want to re do the BBQ (make it more of a feature) and more greenary around it.

We are also looking into a 'swim spa' which we want to put basically where I was standing when I took the pic. The swim spa is a little over 4m long by about 3m wide. Seating for 6 at one end (spa end) and the other end is 1.3m deep with big swim jets so you can swim against the jets. I think the boys will enjoy that when they are older.
