Ugh. Sorry for being so direct, but while you have a very beautiful garden and the Obs is looking to be a beauty, personally, I don't see the point what with all the high flora at every turn. And I thought my views in my backyard were obscured almost beyond hope (by neighbor's very tall trees - full southern sky blocked, etc), it only goes to show that things can always be worse. And I have a really big yard! I have in the past considered building an observatory, but mainly as a place to store my scopes for easier access to the yard (as opposed to in the basement). The trees blocking my astronomy efforts preclude any kind of fixed observation enclosure for me. It would be counterintuitive. But, to each there own and I wish you the best and clear skies!
