My Garden Build – Picture Blog – Days 4 & 5 – Blocks Blocks & More Blocks
Days 4 and 5 don’t look that exciting – but work is progressing really well.
On Monday, Chris, the boss, will be sourcing our large chunks of reclaimed York stone for the patio area near the house, which he’ll clean up by sand-blasting and will be bringing gravel samples for us.
We just have to decide on which gravel and the pattern for the bed/path edging (see 10th pic below) so, please feel free to vote for your choice in a comment, thank you and hope you enjoy the pics!
Day 4 - Basketweave block edging now almost finished down one side....
- and basketweave along back of house – very pleased with how good it looks compared with old Cheshire bricks of the house
... tray cover containing blocks to go here yet
Right-hand edge well on its way too, but must be tea break!
Younger Callum learning to lay tricky bit by the back gate
Gate area finished; young Callum did a good job!
Travis Perkins deliver MORE cement...
...and older Callum mixes more mix - just like cake making really!
Opposite view - of shape of 2 beds nearest house & central octagon emerging, where bird bath will go surrounded by box hedging
So big decision.. to continue with basketweave pattern around beds (can only have single row because of width of path) or to go for soldier bond? The latter would have much neater corners when laid.
All packed up & everyone gone for the day... or have they?! LET ME OUT!
