Lego in the garden/outdoors

Post by wayne.m.j on Fri 30 Dec 2011, 3:43 am

I am curious how LegoLand does it and if their methods can be adapted to the weather patterns of the South East Queensland?

The more I try to design my garage layout, the more I realise that I do not have enough room. However, I have plenty of room in the back and front yards.

I have seen a few examples on Youtube, but they appear to be temporary setups. I thought I saw an article in Railbricks but I cannot find the issue.

I have found the article, but it mentions the issues of having a garden display such as discolouration, wildlife, and other environmental factors bleaching, or breaking components.

Do you think you will give it a try. I would be afraid of the fading, but also all the dirt (and poop) that might go on my Lego, but I would be curious to see how well it lasts outside in SEQ.

I found some pieces that I had when I was younger, they have not faired quite so well.

Dull, yellowed. and warped.
