Makarimi Abdullah
New year just start few days ago. Beside the remaining garden I have, now I'm start work with new garden, the new chapter of gardening project. 01 01 11 it's start a new gardening adventure!

My partner and I, bought this land last August and planning to build our home with dream garden. Our planning is to build traditional Malay houses, full with orchid garden and poultry farm. The location of this land is very peaceful and unique, nearby rice filed and have very good scenery. This land area are 16,000 square feet, more than enough for us to build house and garden.

Clearing the land, is the difficulties to start this project, it is because this land  contains of too  much  water  and have full of mud. First, we needs to clear the bushes and coconut trees, then flatten the area to ensure its higher than the rice fields. 

The weather plays important role during this progress. Base on our local weather last year, during this time no more raining, but this year until 1st week of January, there are still raining. So clearing the land and flatten the area cannot done on schedule. Now, the progress have been stop for few days because of this reason.
By the way, here is some progress for this project.

Original land: beside the rice filed, covered by bushes

Original land: clearing the bushes
