How did you build the ball?

- How did you build the ball?

    My husband is a stonemason, and an engineer, and British, so I asked him how he would build it.

    I would love to replace the grass yard with something even a little spectacular along these lines. Stunning yet simple.

    The sphere is 1m in diameter. The smallest size is 760mm diameter. The largest that we have made is 2m. We could make bigger!

    As for the base, the Dark Planer is quite a heavy piece so it is fixed to a sub ground level foundation pad of concrete.

    I'm sorry about your dog, but I can tell you this: it was not the breeding, it was the love you poured into him that gave him character. You'll have that again someday.

    Yes, there can be two best dogs on the planet. I know, because they are both mine!

    I love the brick border on the pathways. How is that done?

        Bit of a late answer but the sphere comes in these standard sizes: 76cm, 100cm, 120cm, 160cm And it can also be custom made to other sizes.
