love the view from your garden, mine is not quite so open.

No but you'll have the sound of kids at play, love to hear that

A lot of yard to mow Bill. A crop dusting plane and a 44 of roundup would do the trick. Notice nothing green in my yard.
Richard L how do you stop the neighbor's rug rats from invading (no fences)?

The play equipment gets used occasionally by great nephews and nieces or by my teenagers when they are bored and want to mess around, otherwise, it lays in wait for possible grand kids.

There have been two ocassions of invasion. One when there was a block party and a bunch of kids must have thought it was one of the attractions. I had to shoo them off for liability reasons. The other was a little more interesting when I found a condom wrapper on the trampoline matt. Looked around a little more and found the subject latex hanging from one of the bushes you see. That was early in the morning after the middle-of-the-night action. Later that day I see the neighbor's late-teen daughter and her boyfriend hanging out in their back yard. From across the yard I caught the boy's attention (and only his) and pointed at the trampoline, shook my head "no" and wagged my finger. Nothing else was ever said of it, but the girl was later my daughter's high school math teacher.

Hmmm? A7/A10 context? It was probably a Saturday, so I must have been working on my bike that day.

 *lol*

Brian, we can have fences if we want, and some do. It just happens that we're one house off of the corner, so we get the extended backyard view. Not too bad for suburbia.

hi guys, this is my new `Man Cave 'after the other one got destroyed(can`t keep a good bike down). It`s taken 3yrs to get to this point with bike in container storage. Gradually remembering where everything is stored and where it needs to go. Although we have been in new house for18mnths i came up with the idea of changing my Nissan Terrano for a smaller Honda CRV so as to make room for the bike, seems to be working out well and always looking to maximise the space that i have available. We have moved to the north/west of Christchurch from the east side which is now pretty much a bomb site,cheers

Graybeard,

It's not the size of your shed, but how you use it.

(C'mon, it had to be said!)
