Yes and no... the conduit running the power aligns above the edge of each set of growbeds...

The conduit will be tensioned with a wire support... and strings will be threaded from the grow beds to the wire support to provide support, or a point to clip, for climbing plants, tomatoes etc...

Simon...

The site was levelled by a contractor...

Underground power was connected to the meter board by a qualified electrician...

Slab was done by a concrete contractor...

My son helped stand the greenhouse hoops....

A mate helped pull the film over the greenhouse...

The solar installation was done by contractors...

The shed was done by contractors... mainly due to stuff ups by the supplier and shortage of time...

The power will be connected to the sub-board in the shed by a qualified electrician.... Tuesday...

And the outside garden beds and landscaping are being done by contractors....

Everything else was done by me, myself and I....

Moat it darn well is at the moment Abdul... been about 4-5 inchs of rain since Saturday...

All the post holes are full... more annoyingly so is the trench from the power post to the shed sub-board... and the whole greenhouse surrounds are a cluggy, gluey, clay mess...

Probably wont be able to power the sub board until about Thursday... :upset:
