haha yeah does look like that,
got the corners done now,building up the rest to tha theight,then adding extension on the end for basking and plants,all that rubble will go in the extension part then i can finish off with top soil for planting,hard to build and work full time,but with patience i'll get there.

I love doing stuff like that.

Did a new one this year already.

Once started there is no cure.

Yours will go well. Your corners look scarily professional.
