I really want to make an outdoor enclosure in my backyard but my mom doesn't want anything that would be an eyesore. Any tips or pictures of your outdoor enclosures? Also I want him to go outside do have so lame fresh air and sunlight while I am in school, but is that safe to have a tortoise outside in an enclosure unsupervised??

I have a small temporary one that in theory can be moved cause I created it in a kids sandbox.
Benny is very small still so this works for him and I just took new photos today to share cause he was finally able to get out and enjoy some warm weather today

I had this problem with my dad. It really all depends on what your mom considers an eye sore. I used lattice and 4x4 posts to make mine with a 1x4 lip. It is in a corner out of the way. The posts weren't buried and just sit on the ground. The intent was whenever I moved (it was built a few years back), he could easily get rid of it or move it to my house. If I can find a picture I will post it. It was pretty simple since it was put in a corner where there were already walls to build next to.

It won't be moved as my boyfriend has his own plans. Again, it must not be an eye sore. He plans on making full wood walls with a gate, like its own mini fence within the yard.
