Yay! We now have MoT & Grit
Day 2 - Callum the Younger (we have 2 Callums) digs footings trench
Entering this for RHS Tatton 2012 'Visionary Garden' Category - title - 'The Five of Spades'
.. or this one entitled 'Still Life'
Day 3 - Footings ready for paving
Travis Perkins lorry arrives & offloads clay pavers & sand
Day 3 - Chris (the boss) starts laying clay paver edging
Ah, so THAT'S the secret ingredient to a good strong mortar mix!
Day 3 - Motoring along with the block edging now - fabulous weather for it
The concrete mixer & chair get acquainted... nice here, innit!
Think Callum has lost his sandwiches
Closeup of the 'Freshfield Lane' clay pavers - very pleased with them, they already look old which is what I wanted
And there endeth Day 3 of my garden build. It’s all going great; can’t wait for it to be finished now!
