    Has anyone used this stuff from Bunnings for their Blue-Toungues outdoor pits?

    I plan on putting pebbles (for drainage and to stop them from digging out) than this on top of the pebbles (so that I can put some plants in there) then some sugarcane mulch on top. That I am hoping will give enough drainage in the pit to stop it from becoming a pool in rain.

    I plan on using a raised garden bed (the one attached) for the pit.

    It'll be fine.

    It may grow a bit of fungus if its continually wet. Not much chance of that though as the endless dry looks to continue.

    Stack plenty of hollow logs interspersed with slabs of wood. Heaps of cover options is the go for pits.

    Thanks for the reply Rory
    Yeah that was the plan. My mum lives on 10 acres of bush so I was going to go up there soon to go get a few things to throw in there as well buying plants for some extra shade as well
