Man Transforms Garden Into Tropical Paradise

Man Transforms Garden Into Tropical Paradise

ID:

A man has transformed his back garden into a tropical paradise complete with running waterfall and a huge koi pond – for his poorly pet pooch.

Chris Lodge, from Wollaston, Northamptonshire, has spent three years and thousands of pounds on the mammoth project, which also includes a rope bridge, Tiki hut, lighting and dozens of tropical trees and succulents.

The 45-year-old construction worker used his spare time to create a piece of paradise for himself, his wife Sharon and their poorly pet dog, Dice.

And now the Boxer dog – who is unable to roam far from home due to seizures – can often be found falling asleep on the wooden bridge as he listens to the soothing sound of running water.

    Awesome!!

  8. Eco Greenyes on September 6, 2021 at 10:50 pm

    Cannot even begin to fathom how this paradise was created/completed?

  9. ggdail on September 6, 2021 at 10:50 pm

    I love this! I’m planning on building my own tiki bar, but most of the how-to videos seem to go for the cheap, "just throw some palm thatch here & there, then call it a day" kind of feel. I’m looking to do something that looks like a mini Trader Vic’s or Don the Beachcomber got dropped in my backyard. This is one of the best ones I’ve seen so far.

    The only problem with this video is it’s not a feature length film….Dam I could watch this all day long.

    What a fantastic bloke, such a beautiful attitude to life, and such a great eye for detail.

    I’d love to know more about how he dug the pond and built the waterfall….It’s amazing.

    My favourite video on You Tube πŸ’•πŸŒ΄πŸŒ΄

    Amazing!

    I love the forest and jungle, love the city, HATE lawns and well kept yards. To me, well kept yards are ugly and show unoriginality where one who pushes to have a well kept lawn and yard aren’t willing express themselves. For me, if I could, I’d get rid of all yards and lawns and build massive jungles and forests which not only looks beautiful and better, but is far better for the ecosystem as it allows for wildlife to thrive and bees to have a much easier time with pollination.

    This man is so nice, such a legend, loves his wife and did such an amazing job and has inspired me with my Hawaiian garden.

    I feel you. I have a dog who gets chronic pancreatitis which could occur if fed her anything except her prescription food. We watch her like a hawk.
