But the most satisfying words after a construction are "I am so glad we went ahead and did......." Putting in a WFO is not inexpensive, but the only cost for continued enjoyment is a little wood and lots of great ingredients for tasty food.

Gj i am from the group called one steps "you know" (one step from the trees).
in truth it did take me bit to fill it and i must say i am pleased that there is only 2 1/2 to go. the next 2 i will need to do in 2 parts as i have used all my material and i do not have enough to go around the whole bed in one hit.

Maburton i live in Canberra the capital of Australia. i am not sure of what you mean about the chicken however they are up the back. i made them a run between the wooden garden beds and the fence. we have 3 chickens and 1 duck.
Along the back fence i have espaliered a lot of fruit trees and by having the run along there the chooks fertalize the trees , keep the weeds down, keep the pests down, and clean up any wind fall. so they are a great bonus.
