Ok. I'll get on with it..........
Update..... More paving lifted. Anyone need any paving stones ha ha.
When i realised the reason for it it made more sense. She walks on tip toe most of the time, so clearing the ground by a cm ish. I'll do the bigger ones over winter, and cover with topsoil in the meantime.

Lovely enclosure, would I be right in saying if you can't manage heated shed, smaller kennel type thing would do, as long as it had enough height to accommodate heat lamp and frost heater. Sorry to but in but I know how I felt at the beginning looking at all the fantastic set ups, thinking I couldn't manage anything as good.

Hi Gizmosmum,
 Your enclosures a good size, is there a reason you've not taken up all the paving slabs in the enclosure area as this would work a lot better for her, with all the paving slabs up you could make it a lot more natural for her. :)

It's about 50/50, the paving is easier for me to get in and sort her out, but yes I know more soil area would be better. Some of the photos are from last year when she 1st arrived, we've dug more up since then. At one point we were considering moving her somewhere else in the garden so we hung fire abit on lifting more paving but looks like she's staying there now so probably lift some more. She may eventually learn to dig!!! You know what it's like....constantly tweaking stuff to get it right!!

This is what I did. Heat lamp and frost heater with thermostat in little hut on patio, I dug up the paving slabs in places and dug up plantain, garlic mustard geranium etc to put in. She's out there till hibernation. Glad you're choosing outdoors. This set up is great for us cis i can sit and watch her from the conservatory. The glass shelter is an old shower screen, I've put an outdoor light on a timer under it and she uses it on cloudy days. I've fenced it with stud timber from wickes, put some pond netting over it all. Just to give you an idea.
