Well, okay, Konrad's a little young for it still, but Sungiva's certainly happy and Konrad will grow into it.
I mostly built the sandbox out of parts salvaged from last year's deck removal, though to be honest I don't love the old pressure-treated wood and hope it leached a lot of its evil content already. For the top surface, which kids will be touching all the time, I used Trex instead. The hardest parts were creating a level place for the sandbox, which meant digging out a whole cluster of root intersections and cutting them apart, and loading the sandbox with 1000 pounds of sand.
Hopefully the kids will enjoy it for a long time, and after that it should have a nice life as a raised bed for plants.Posted by simon at May 8, 2010 4:20 PM in Simons Life , my house
