Hose bib in a tree stump.

A cypress tree was culled the other day and it afforded an opportunity to move an unsightly hose bib from an inconvenient location. Kind of a triple play.

A vertical notch was chainsawed into the stump,
the old hose bib was removed from its previous location and repiped 6' closer to the path and routed up the back side of the stump.

The notched out piece of tree stump was trimmed and replaced, enclosing and concealing the pipe. Once a terra cotta hose pot is added to contain the hose, the detail will be complete.

Nicely done. A very clever use of a remnant.
