Careful planning


Free water for the grapes

In such a small space, we need to plan as much as possible. Part of that planning is to reduce work and increase our leisure time which usually translates into some other kind of work…) and to enable me to more easily maintain the garden when I’m sick.

One example of this kind of micro-management is the location of our grapevine. It’s placed under the new tap so that it can benefit from all the excess drops and spills that are likely to come from it.

The grapevine still has its own dripper, connected to the polypipe irrigation system, but will thrive on the extra Summer water.

Hopefully it will then grow to shade our entrance way from the hot Summer sun.
