    Neat. Will it be sitting off the ground? How are you going to support it?

    Re: rfeiller's-outdoor garden construction

    Ok, how about turning the monitor upside down? there is a probably a way to fix this? simple sketch showing what is there, tomorrow i will take an updated photo of the buckets with plants in them.



    JCO-those days of carring a 90lb bag of cement on each shoulder are gone, i'm 3" shorter then i was when i was 21. pain never stops.

    UF- the next two GB's will be on an elevated stand approximately 30" above the pond. that will give the system 540gals of GBs.

    if you want to do the math i have 2-1/2 cubic yards of red lava at $59 per cu yd including tax. vs $31 per 50L of hydroton.
    I will add another cubic yard of red lava to the new GB's.

    it's gonna be beautiful. the greenhouse revamp phase duo is next. by the way under the large timbers holding the buckets is a 20,000 gal KOI pond I hope to finish this summer. the 600gal pond is actually plumbed in as a biopond for that. and will continue to provide nutrients for the AP.

    .

    plants are doing well, for the moment they are being hand watered. that will change soon.

    this biopond is 600 gals. the unconnected ball valves in the center of the ponds edge the vertical two are for the new EDPN liner tanks now under construction, the two horizontal ball valves are for the bucket garden.

    unfortunately the neighbors trees never stop dropping hence the mesh on top of the pond covered in leaves. once a week his blow and go guy blows all of the leaves up over the fence onto my side so he doesn't have to pick them up.

    Re: rfeiller's-outdoor garden construction

    thanks, it's going to get better. i need to add one more 100 gal reservoir/GB to the one side so that it is balanced. can't see them but the GB's are planted with cuttings, asparagas, and seedlings.

    Do you have your buckets on a flood and drain or continuous flow?
