Gotta agree with Sally on this one:
Generally, people do not respect or trust things they receive on silver
platters. Proof?
Check out your teenager, or someone elses if you've not yet descended that
far into madness.  

On plumbing: When nature calls on a hot summer day in the garden, I walk to
the corner bar and buy a beer...if the Met's game is on, I buy another beer.
If the jukebox is playing something good...

A Montreal style garden with a john would not be a bad thing.

It's wonderful that you were able to provide your wish-list to the garden,
but if there's one very large thing I've learned from 25 + years of doing
this, is that if the community didn't work hard to get something, they
won't appreciate it when they have.
So, the jaded old lady adds an odd item to the wish list:
 OCCASIONAL (but not insurmountable) ADVERSITY.
 To offset the hot showers and flush toilets, of course, Adam.
