wow! you've been busy! 20 000 plants!

I definitely think some greenery near the house would be nice, but I think it's best to wait for the house construction to finish. I have found tradespeople around the house have a tendency not to notice the plants and crush them accidently while they work.

Are the pillars stone or concrete or...? What colour is your front door going to be?

With tomato plants, look into Companion Planting. Here we plant basil, garlic and marigolds among the tomatoes. Don't plant the same vegetables in the same place within three years, look into Crop Rotations. Make compost, but don't put diseased plant material into it. Use mulch. All the best.

Yes that is a massive house you need a swimming pool there or a hot tub outside in a shed then some nice green loan and create a play ground for that little lovely kid. That's what I think

Don't plant until your house is done! Everything will get trampled by workers!
