The house here at Arborlon has a somewhat primitive grey water system. Water from the bathroom sink, kitchen sink, and shower drains to a grey water reservoir just outside the house in our back yard. it is a small-ish concrete tank set in the ground. It has a submersible dirty water pump that runs intermittently, and the outlet is just a grey water pipe extended down the hill below the house.
We built a potting bench.. and it’s bloody good.
This project was long overdue and one of the best things we have done to make our “work” here easier. If your thinking of building one… do it!
Today we found a very nice surprise pop-up(A plant that appears naturally or as an unexpected result). Two naturally growing Grevillea plants.
One of our major issues at Arborlon is Erosion. Running or flowing water has caused significant erosion in most gullies across our property and severely affected the house hill. Now that the South path Wall is finished we can continue to add some more elements of our water control plan.
One of those is the use of Whoa-boys. Don’t know what a Whoa-boy is… neither did we. At least not by that name.
