WOW George, you have made a new one :D
It is just as beautiful as the old one :D
You know I loved it :wink:

Don't it need more support than a bit of digging down and the stones ?

Have to look at my garden and may have to speak to my carpenter friend- he will shake his head, then what - I'm used to that reaction.
The new garden is starting to look promissing, cant wait to spring for updates ...

Hi Thy,
It's nice to know someone is out there on this forum.
To make the circle I just laid out on the floor large pieces of external 3/4" external plywood, got a piece of string long enough for half of my circle and nailed it in the center of the plywood I then just marked the circle out by moving the string round in a circle.
I hope that helps.
George

Very classy! George, did you have a different forum name before? I don't think I remember seeing this one. Don't know how I could have missed it, but there it is! Thanks for the pics. Phyllis
