I’ve had a read through a bunch of location threads on this forum, as well a youtube and various other documents on the web, and I’m fairly happy with my chosen location, however I just wanted to get confirmation/advise before locking it in so to speak.
I’ve added a photo below for reference.
The yellow star is the proposed hive location (Hive entrance facing to the top of map which is north, good sun and dappled shade depending on time of year, I’m southern hemisphere)
The blue line is our drive and turning circle heading to the shed (approx 25m/80ft away from hive location) next to the vegetable garden (south west).
The purple line is a seldom (max monthly) used access track to our property boundary.
Chickens are free range in electric netting that we move around and there will be fodder crops growing there for them soon.
Veg refers to our under construction vegetable garden (currently tomatoes and sweet potatoes).
Orchard is under construction as well (currently just a couple of citrus).
The thin green line is a low voltage overhead power line
2 x dams within 75m (250ft) and 150m (500ft)
Hives will be situated on stands on a 5x5m gravel area (so i don’t need to mow near) with deciduous short trees to the west to take some of the summer blast
Neighbors property line is the thin yellow one running next to the purple, their house is over 250m (800ft) away.
Our house is 50m (170ft) away
