The lads came today to put the boundaries up for Tort Lodge and Gardens. There is a row of sleepers under the ground for levelling and to stop preditors digging in. I am thinking now of keeping it hilly and bumpy for climbing and exploration. Obviously I now have the fun part to do which will be digging out all those bulbs I have been setting in this area for the last 8 years :wacko: Posted ImagePosted Image




I am sooo excited. x x x hugs x x

Unfortunately Chrissyan it Is.... But I think of it as a permanent structure for the garden and I do want it right. The sad news is I won't now have room for a conservatory. .... But then who wants to clean all those windows!! X

Regarding keeping safe... I read a lot about placing netting etc over outdoor enclosures. Is this always/really necessary. What is the protection against? Ok I know magpies etc and the dangers to baby torts... And the problem of foxes and other night time predictors... But if torts are big... And locked up at night... Is netting necessary x x

I covered mine so my cats wouldn't go in there and use it as a litter tray! Plus he's still only little and I don't want him being pecked by crows or carried off by birds of prey! :blink:

Tort Lodge is going to be just great, can't wait to see the end results.
Torts all over the country will be wondering whether you are taking bookings! :D

I have had a knee operation and not quite mobile so have loads of time to think and plan... Though to be fair I have been researching/ reading others advice and looking at others enclosures for the past year!!! I have just said to David.... I have been thinking about tort gardens.... His face said it all... But... What about a shallow water feature with running water. X x x
