and installed west end of potting bench.
Rustic Log Bench
Cut in 2006 and
placed under the cedar tree.
The Knodel Bird House
Installed 2005 in
next to garage.
Installed 2005 with
materials already on hand, this remote hydrant is placed in a
spot just behind the garage. A garden hose connects the
post with the main water source at the house. An other
hose is connected to a simple value hydrant that is mounted on
the post. This allows us to control water pressure from
this remote location without walking to the house faucet to
make all those minor sprinkler adjustments. (Some day we
hope to install a real outdoor water hydrant -- but for now
this works great.)
friends need to drop off papers or other things at the house
when we are not home. The mailbox in the back yard next to the
garage door serves as a perfect drop-off point. Just be sure to
raise the flag so we know something is in the box.
