The site is prepped!

IMG_0001 IBC tank, ready to go.

Job done! Grevillea Oval Embankment is raring to go. The holes are drilled and pre-watered, the rest will hopefully be fun for all. The soil was good digging so here is hoping we have some very happy plants by tomorrow afternoon.

A recycled IBC, ready for all of our watering needs, well, almost. After prepping the site I had to zip across to Bunnings to figure out how on earth I was going to put a standard garden hose onto an IBC butterfly valve. There are a couple of ways you can do it when you have the time, but sometimes you have to “bodgie” things up hey?! Nothing a bit of rubber tubing can’t fix- one rubber 50x40mm reducer, one threaded 1-1/4 BSP fitting, one 12mm hose adapter and some thread tape. $18

From a 50mm IBC butterfly valve to a 12mm hose adapter. From a 50mm IBC butterfly valve to a 12mm hose adapter.
