Prep ground? huh? LOL. well manually raked the ground to clear top... did weed killer about 3 weeks ago. then put in two different soil types of plant/veggines(20CF) or whatever.... then moo-nure (1 cf), PeteMoss (2cf) tilled into 6 mounds.... I still need more soil to fill the rest... haha. Probably total of 60CF.





This is layer one... still 9ft to go. And no it is not crooked... the ground is sloped.

Looks good ! How tall will it be when your finished? or do you just keep adding sections as your hops grow.

bottom of hill (right side) is prox 6ft.... top of hill (left side) 4 feet above ground. Probably only 9ft above this..... so 15ft and 13 foot. minus the mount height of approx .5-1ft. but id like to go higher... my only concern is getting the hops down.... that part still isn't planned out.


But.... if this turns out to be a good investment then I will clean the entire back yard and make it look very kick ass.... maybe put in a lil stream... heh.

Dumb question but are they going to get enough sun? Looks like a lot of shade there.

Looks great!!! I live in Cartersville (about 20 minutes north of you) and my hops are around 3' - 4' tall at this point; they really take off. You'll have them up and growing in no time!

Looks good dude! I'll have too get pictures of my hops trellis when I get it installed. I put the rhizomes in the ground not long ago so I have a little bit of time. I should be building it in the next week or two.

Im just worried for when I go on vacation.... may 22nd-31st.. heh. Might just cut them back before I go no matter what.... then hope they take a lil while to grow up and then train them when I get back.
