Mark wanted the Backyard system which consists of 3 growbeds. The system is able to be viewd from the living aread and easily accessable from the back patio.
The system layout can be managed from either side of the growbed and gets plenty of sunshine.

The beds are filled with expanded clay which is lightweight compared with other media and kind on the hands when planting new seedlings as well as seeds.

Thanks Charlie, I think Mark was pretty happy. He and his wife came to the shop today to pick up some feed, have a look at the established systems and bought some floating plant rings. These are ideal for invasive water loving plants like mint and watercress.

It is almost as if the space was designed for his system. I hear he actually washed the expanded clay himself, a true part of the induction process.
