We built the merbau screen.

Step 3

Waterproofed the urn.

Step 4

Added the solar pump.

Step 5

Added the fake plant tiles.

Planted out with different plants.

Re: Backyard garden with Merbau screen

A warm welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community, @Jgee1!. We're delighted to have you join us and hope you find this site a handy resource providing useful advice and inspiring ideas for your home improvement and garden D.I.Y. projects.


That backyard garden looks beautiful. The Merbau screen provides a great backdrop for the urn. How did you get the idea to feature the urn in a raised garden bed? Did you face any particular challenges along this project? And how did you overcome them?


Congratulations once again for this terrific project and looking forward to seeing more of your creative ideas come to life.
