We have done a lot of work over the past year when we took it on it was totally over grown (around 7ft high) and the trees on the one side has never been touched so we trimmed them all back burned them and kept the ash ready for the beds

Wow that’s some impressive building work you’ve done there, I take it there’s no water on site with all those ibc tanks, love that they’re all linked together.

Thanks for the kind comments there was a lot of thought before we even started we always new we wanted raised beds so the soil that we dug out for the buildings will be sieved (big mound at bottom of plots at mo) then used to help fill the beds as for the ibc ‘s I had them for free from a local food factory and find with them all linked with 2” waste pipe you get half decent pressure I’ve wrapped them in Black to stop the algae and they are fed from the shed roof into a cold water tank with pond filter material inside the hope being that when the greenhouse is finished there’s going to be drip irrigation so they shouldn’t get blocked up (fingers crossed)

I did make a mistake on it with the really low temperatures we’ve had lately with me forgetting to drain the system I managed to split to bottom right t and as it’s all solvent welded it means cutting that section out and fitting a whole new piece a right pain in the a** but a lesson well learnt if you want some more info drop me a message and I’ll help you with it  :D
