Default custom viv for bosc

So after reading acromyrmexbob's threads I thought I'd give it a go myself and this is what I came up with. It's 7x3x3 and once it's air'd I'll be adding 3/4 ton of garden soil which should give just under 2ft soil depth at the back.
Check it out and let me know what you think.

The rectangle on the right is for a door which doubles as a ramp


plumbing exit's out the right hand side of the viv.


Also,can anyone recommend some grass that will survive bosc temps?

looks good, try some ornamental grasses or you can get savannah grass if you hunt around, to be honest its not so much the temps that kill them but the boscs themselves, they get dug up etc.

hi and thanks. I live in a 1st floor flat with concrete floors so the weight isnt as much of an issue. the build took roughly 3 months to complete and cost roughly 1k to build. the only problem I had was......the whole build lol Because of the way I designed it it had to be built in situe which meant everything from cutting wood,mixing cement to painting was all done in my lounge. not the best idea I've had as I live in rented accommodation but luckily I have a very understanding landlord,thank god
