My family had recently moved to a new home here in Orange County, and luckily we were also able to transfer most my turtles and tortoises with us to the new place. I am very happy with the new backyard we got, and now I had to pull up my sleeves and put on my sombrero to build and setup different habitats for each species.

Here are a few photos of the new yard for the turtles and tortoises, and I will spend the next two weekends to setup the habitats...

Patio cover with flower garden just right outside of the kitchen area...

The flower garden with the existing pre-formed pool...love the pre-formed pool as I can drop one of my tortoises in there right away... ^_^

The backyard lawn with concrete planters on the sides and middle area...

I will post some more photos of the habitats next week once I put some works onto it...

Please don't drop the poor thing in the prefab, a nice soft release would be much better :p :D just kidding. You have some fun work ahead of you. Can't wait to see finished projects. Include the torts loving it:)

This is where I would sit every morning and afternoon by the habitats to spend times with my turtles and tortoises...

more to come on backyard habitats...

I've also got two habitats setup inside my mini strawberry garden in the backyard...

I got two habitats setup using the raised-bed garden frame...pretty easy to install and will endure the outdoor conditions...

The bigger habitat housed a pair of the Hermann Tortoises...

Now I can finally sit back and relax in my patio chair and enjoy my newly finished Kameya Habitats.

Very nice! It gives the instant feeling of wanting to just stop everything and sit down for a few to relax and enjoy.

Very cool...where did you get the raised flower bed pieces? I usually see wood material...I like the composite material much better....:D

Thanks for the compiment...I found the raised garden bed on the Amazon website, and you can get free shipping from Amazon for this big merchandise. It is very easy to put together, and the wall is about 11" high, so it's a quick and easy way to build an outdoor pen for your small tortoises.
