My contribution to th Xmas spirit...a Xmas lights tree 😀 Materials: 3m + 1m lengths of stormwater pipe, lights, pegs, plant tie, scraps of timber, pipe joiner,
cup hooks, 1 hole...
Could make a permanent in-ground socket with a larger diameter pipe.
Thanks for yr comment.
As I hinted, u could consider putting a "socket" in th hole so th tree can be dismantled & th socket covered/plugged so it's ready to go again next Xmas. I used 90mm stormwater pipe so would make th socket out of 100mm. U could use a proper pipe end cover or just use a paver/timber to cover th socket. Cheers
