Dominic, how beautiful the way you put the birds areas into the landscape! I bet there are a lot of natural insects that come in and provide fresh treats for your critters. 

What about snakes and reptiles? Do they visit you? and what kinds? 

How do you manage watering? Everything looks so fresh and flourishing. Even the pots. I live in a semi-arid area and have a hard time keeping clay pots watered unless I have them on drip hoses.

Dominic, a lovely spread, full of so much color and form, lots of textures, and hardly a bird in sight. You must have them in well covered areas among shrubs and trees. I see very little of your wire areas for birds and other wildlife. How much ground do you have here?  What is the bright red blooming plant, next to a little bit of structure showing. I like the way you use red clay pots, perhaps hanging from a fence or a support. Very nice feature. Spanish moss adds to the tropical scene. What elevation are you at; will you be bothered by ocean rise? With all those trees and strong winds, have you had any structural losses to your buildings, or your aviaries?

So we were discussing trees and mowing.  Part of the reason why I bought my property six years ago was because of the big trees.  It is hard to grow most things in the full sun in Fl.  These are pics from around the property, two days after mowing and no raking.  I never rake.  The mowed leaves quickly return to the soil.

@ amer: Perhaps then I just need to cut some of the upper paddles off and let them reroot.

Sentient- I am just starting out.  We are converting an old greenhouse into a coop.  My friend just picked up four already-laying cuckoo marans for me.  She's being kind enough to house them with her flock until the coop is ready.  Next time I'll get chicks, but the timing wasn't right.

I'm not sure how long the charge lasts.  I can mow my front and back (about 40 minutes total) on one charge, but I haven't done that it a few years (I now do the back one day and the front on another).   The mower is now several years old and I was worried the battery would not hold a charge as long as it aged, but so far so good!
