I have built some retaining walls so that I can flood the garden to a depth of about 10". Takes about 15 minutes to flood the garden with water coming down the mountain in irrigation channels. Then the water is diverted outside to water our shrubs outside our walls. I have put in a pipe so that I can top up the swimming pool through a filter and the cost of the water is 4 tl for 1 hr.

Forgive me for obviously being dim, but why do you want to flood your garden? I can understand storing water for drought times, but not flooding the garden to this degree.

It takes about 2 hrs for the water to soak into the ground after the sluice water is stopped. If we didn't flood the garden it would just run off and very little would actually soak into the earth.

So what do you know about Pakistan Zuber. Enlighten us about there gardens. I myself want to create a Japenese garden in turkey as the climate lends itself to it. Ordered and clean with medatative properties.

Lovely pictures Ian,

Looks like a little waterfall, I'm sure it is something ingenious ......talking of British gardening in Turkey
How did the neighbours react to this ? It must have been of interest to then

Flowerpot, do you really want to make a Japanese garden in Turkey or are you just kidding me ?
I would love to see that, disguished as a geisha of course....
