The finished Store-Workshop, except repainting the fascia board grey.

Now for the surrounding landscaping.

Will start with a few more tress, a bit of lawn turf and then later some garden bed areas. It all take time. :roll:

So after the fun, they got back to work and started to clear up the yard/vegetation, on the North side, around the Amazon Studio-Workshop and the new Store -Workshop for some more landscaping.

Will start with planting a few more trees, to give it a jungle effect :lol:

Then will need to construct the Driveway slab

Matserplan and its Overlay on Google

Still have the Kitchen & Sala to build + 35 m of Boundary Wall + the Driveway North to concrete, then move onto filling in all gaps with gardens & soft landscaping :roll:

I figure another 12 months to complete the actual building, boundary wall & driveway and then further 12 months after that to do all the gardens & landscaping. To date, 2 1/2 years of building.

The finished Main Garage-Tool Room-Laundry-Shower & Toilet.

Decided to leave the roof gutters off the Garage, at this time

And a few more (20 No) fruit trees go in the North East corner

A mixture of some, Som (Orange), Som-O (Pomelo), Noi-Na (Custard Apple), Mung-Koot (Mangosteen), Fa-rang (Guava), Chom-Poo (Rose Apple) & Kah-ton (Santol). I figure around 4 years (maybe a bit more) before they start to fruit.

My landscaping (Planting & tidy up) continues out the back around my Amazon Cafe-Workshop. This year is all about just getting the main trees established and next year will be the medium-small plants & paving.

Will move onto to some more tree planting around the Store area, in June and then start the Hedges. I expect the hedges will take a year to get to some shape before I can trim them

Bought a couple of trees for planting close to the Garage. Cost was TB 500 each, at a local nursery up the road.

Have no idea of the name or what type of tree they are, but they should provide some added shade cover, in a few years time

I also feel the problem about name of trees.
Thais seems to have their own name for many of the trees and if you like to look on internet about what the trees prefer about sun/water etc its difficult.
Have mostly to rely on Pictures and hope find the correct one.
But also felt if you ask a gardener to find a certain tree, you send him a Picture and also the name but he tends to ask you if you not like another better :-)
Best is to go to garden center and fint yourself :-)

Slowly doing a bit more soft landscaping around the Workshop Studio. This is just temporary to tidy up the area. Should be good for 18 months or so.

Then will redo, maybe with a small Koi pond :lol:

Nice!

That's big enough for a putting green.

"Will move onto to some more tree planting around the Store area, in June and then start the Hedges. I expect the hedges will take a year to get to some shape before I can trim them."

Three months into the next wet season and you will have a real job on your hands keeping the hedges under control. And hey c'mon Pipoz - as if it would be you trimming them :roll:

Hi ajarnundon

I actually haven't found what type of hedge at this stage and I always thought most were slow growing. But if they grow reasonable quick as you suggest that will be a bonus to me. Luckily I have a part time gardener guy, who works for TB 350 a day. If you have any suggestions on a hedge type, please just let me know

Re Bikes: The bikes are currently all in pieces and yes they are in the Store Workshop next door to my Amazon. All Yamaha R1's at this stage. Am trying to sell the Ducati over here, as the import/customs tax into Thailand, would be horrific
