We installed the additional sections on Friday and then we had to mount all the finishing details. It was great to see the kids’ faces at break time as each of them had very intrigued looks about them. “what is it? what you doing?” were the cries coming from behind the barriers. It was all good feedback for us as we put it together.
All that is left to do is fill the planters with soil and then plant out the beds.
