We want to enjoy it for a long time, so we have thoroughly learned how to handle it. With the spade we had a 3.50 mx 3 m large bed about 40 cm [...]

Although we had our ideas about how the whole thing should look like, but the way was so far too difficult for us. There were some difficulties to deal with. The biggest problem was a big tree about 8 meters high, which had to be removed. A big tree fell without risk with permission! Attentive neighbors told us that we first have to get permission to make it. So off to the construction office of our community. What do you not do everything [...]
