Healing Garden Inspection   

The following are the results of Kevin's inspection with notes and recommendations.

General

In general all is is in pretty good condition.. no alarming issues.Basically some TLC. general cleaning and repairing with some repairs and maintenance in areas.

Mushroom

The Mushroom broke a weld under the surface. t his was the reason for the wobbling. The Plan is to bring the Mushroom back to the shop and repair by re welding new structure stronger and better and bringing back up to re install during the rehab of the garden.

    we will need to cut away a large circle of the safety surfacing to expose the existing metal  brackets trapped under the surface and then re attach the new structure then re apply new safety surfacing using as much of the black underlayment as possible.

    we will re weld structure, re foam and carved, then coat with Polyurea then paint new.

Hole left after we removed the Mushroom

LILLY PADS


Lilly Pad #1

the first Lilly pad s in bad shape. We do not suggest removing from its position but the  inner wood is all rotten.

    Suggest removing wood and filling with safety surfacing for a solid, waterproof and cushioned surface. then apply existing Lilly pad surface to the top and then apply a pre colored paintable Polyurea  (truck bed liner) this has proven to be a REMARKABLE SOLUTION to solve these types of issues.

Lilly Pad #1

The areas i am putting my hands on are soft underneath and need surgery as described above.

Lilly Pad #2

this pad is in better condition but a couple of the areas need surgery like above. the Frog is in great shape and only need re painting.  We use a two part epoxy paint suitable for painting oil rigs.

Lilly Pad #2

another soft area

Lilly Pad #2

Leaf Branch   

GREAT CONDITION. just needs re paint

Bean Pods

Items i could reach are loose and CERTAINLY need attention so they don't fall down on someone. i am sure we installed through bolts though.

    they need pressure washing and spot painting. some epoxy putty at joints.

All Components

Unless the client wants BRIGHTER COLORS the vine does not need a re painting but c pressure washing and clear coating would give it new and extended life.

Log Bench

In GREAT CONDITION. just needs new paint job and to fill the squishiness under the seat. there is a bug missing on the top.


Note to self: don’t forget about all the neat little bugs that were sprinkled over the garden. Kids really pick up on them.

Bean Pod Bench

In GREAT CONDITION. just needs new paint job

Acorn Seat

In GREAT CONDITION. just needs new paint job and to fix the sagging on each inside wall of the seat

Big Tree

This structure too is in great condition. it doesn’t Necessarily need a new paint job but some epoxy putty on seams and fresh clear coat would bring some life to it.

Top Watershed

need to clean, seal and confirm top is shedding water.

Raccoons

the coons need some TLC. they are still in tact but broken and need re adhering.

Back yard

The area closed off by the fence just needs cleaning. the fence itself is in GOOD CONDITION and just needs paint touch up

all  plastic windows in GREAT SHAPE

Stairs

in good shape. just risers need replacing, seal and re paint

Also in GREAT SHAPE. just some touch up epoxy and paint

Butterfly Bench

Just needs cleaning

Light Boxes

need to replace incandescent rope lights with LED on interior of light boxes. The boxes are in great shape

Brownstone cont

window in good shape and lights bugs will be replaced

Pressure Washing

in a broad sense we need an overall pressure washing. the elements and ESPECIALLY THE SURFACING is mildewed

Tree Stump Stage

ALL GOOD. just needs pressure washing

Flowers

overall in good physical shape but they need re attaching and new polyurea color coating. some tops have come off and need reattaching. some bugs have fallen off.

Brownstone Stairs

the stairs and pedestals need  some TLC. panels need to be reattached and corners sealed. risers on stairs as well but as a whole the stairs are good. The tops the pedestals need re coating

Interior Electric

Shots of electrical components

lamp Post

The lamp post is rotten inside. think it is better just to build a new one in the shop  than to try to repair this one in the field

Rafter End

Needs epoxy and re paint

Cottage

This too IS IN GOOD CONDITION. only a couple of areas of rot that need rebuilding then a new paint job. THE ROOF SHINGLES ARE IN GREAT CONDITION

notice the drain

drain is about here

3 1/2” square tubing

Vine

is in great shape. the connections of the components like leaves and bugs are loose and need to be tightened and secured better.

water got in due to these grooves failing

BUG LIGHTS

It is unknown if the bug lights work as we could not observe at night and need confirmation if they work or not.

a previous repair shows new foam but no epoxy coating. kids have pulled some way

I’m OK

Butterfly

was not able to test connection but looks good. will address when return on site
