Introduction: Southern Garden
Rock Terrace: The side of the driveway was difficult to mow, so we used several pallets of rocks to make a garden. My advice is to use gloves: I wore off my fingerprints. It's really difficult to pick things up without fingerprints, but they grow back eventually. My wife is a wonderful gardener as can be seen from her healthy plants!
Conservatory: We found old windows being thrown out, so we decided to make a conservatory. The base was made of scrap wood and the legs are bedposts from a little girls bed we found on the side of the road.
Feather Weather vane: Very loosely based on a weather vane we saw in a museum in Williamsburg, Va. I made it from some copper flashing and soldered it to 1/2" copper pipe. I was going to spray it for a green patina, but my wife said she'd like it to naturally age. She even had me burn holes in it to make it look older. I Just recently added the N,S,E, and W using mashed copper tubing.
We have a be nice policy.
