So I was inspired recently to build a "fairy house"(for lack of better description) for my garden.

The basic Idea is to add some aesthetics while creating a predator habitat/insect trap for the garden.

Specifically I will take a large log with branching and bore holes into it for hideaways and planting holes (wild flowers, herbs, etc.) and then add decorative details (maybe solar lamps).
Then place it into my garden with some decorative grass behind it.

Not only would it be aesthetic but it will fill several Permie directives. Please feel free to leave comments.
 
No more fooling around. Read this tiny ad:
