For the last eight years I have concentrated on building my garden. When I purchased my home none of the structures or plants existed. Majority of work I did myself, except for hiring a contractor to build swimming pool, pond, and deck. All other structures, such as chicken coop, arbors, screened porch in the back of the property, and fence I designed and built myself.
