Dig in the center of the sandbox pit in which to install the legs of the fungus. Set the fungus is necessary before the sand pit will be backfilled with sand, and even better - immediately after the markup of the future sandbox. Especially conveniently so to do, if you are planning to concrete the foot fungus.
Make a hat for fungus – it must perform from boards, which are fixed in a special way. We put together four of the triangle to the leg fasten their lap. Outside of their panel of thin plywood. Sufficient for the cap to be a width of about 2.5 m.
Choose a plywood or a thin Board "siding" to sew the canopy top. Secure the boards with nails. Every Board should be so located that the nail head on the previous would be hidden from view.
When ready hat fungus and attached to the leg as it should, put it in the prepared hole. Align the post in the hole, lock the wedging of the stones, fill the hole with loam.
In order that the fungus was fixed in the ground as much as possible, the bottom rack is best to pour a concrete solution. On the bottom of the pit lay a large gravel, set the leg so that it was buried to a depth of 70 cm then fill in with cement mortar and left to harden.
Make the fungus more vivid and interesting. After the leg is installed and locked in place, the hat can be painted in any color you like. For example, to represent the fly agaric is red with white polka dots hat is very stylish and visible from afar. You can accomplish the hat in any other color – as prompt fantasy.
If for some reason the construction of the cap of the fungus is impossible, it is quite suitable and the temporary coating of the film or other similar material. It can be mounted even bricks or just rubber band - protective function of this coating will perform.
Wood is a natural material that is easily prone to rot. To protect the leg from premature decay, treat it with antiseptic – you can use a mixture of diesel oil and bitumen, creosote, used engine oil. Each of the parts of the fungus as follows programsuite and color – better twice.
