Joe, you are undoubtedly the king of outdoor enclosures -- I always love what you do, and I'm sure people will get lots of inspiration and great tips from your photos -- thanks so much for posting them!

P.S. People ain't seen nothin yet -- wait until they get a look at your turtle ponds -- which are the most amazing set-ups ever!

That reminds me of an outdoor enclosure I had once, in a previous house. It was surrounded on two sides by the wall of the house, on one side by a garden wall, and on the fourth side I just put breeze blocks up. It was a concrete patio, so I dumped loads of soil and sand on it until it was about five inches deep, and it worked fine.

It's amazing what you can do with a bit of imagination, a few bricks, wood and a bag of dirt 8-)

So true. I'm not particularly inventive with enclosures -- not a patch on BigJoe -- but it's sometimes fun to see what you can do with very little!
