The Cuttings Border

The Cuttings Border, originally uploaded by malyousif.

I was determined to finish this border so I attacked it when I got home from work last night. It took me about 3 hours to finish this new border in which I laid down the irrigation pipe and just a few drip-heads for the banana tree, dig the front of the border and then carefully lay the red-bricks, level the earth in front and behind them then install the white metal fence in its place. I didn’t put a door there as it’s low enough to get in and out of the area if needed.

The main idea behind putting this little fence in the first place – apart from it looking nice – is to get the dogs to think that this is a private area and that they’re not allowed in, considering this border is right next door to their kennel! They’re good like that and get the idea very quickly of what’s private and what’s theirs. Most of the time.

It’s almost ready to receive some seeds and plenty of bulbs. The remaining job is to install the drip heads all along the pipes and that’s it done.

Just imagine what it would look like in 12 weeks’ time or so!
