Finally some real progress happening.

Made the raised bed over weekend and the lads came last nite and today.



Project pack went down easy and well.

Day off today so managed to empty one of the crates and actually cut the grass!

With some artful angles the garden looks done!



In reality it’s looking a lot better but not done yet.

End of today’s work after a down pour! Apologies for the sun!

Looking good mate.

Just out of interest what pavers have you gone for on the main patio? We are looking at getting some indian sandstone but worried they will start to delaminate.

Finally the end is in sight!

Lads came back mon-weds nite and finished the laying.





Started with the buff resin today but ran out so back to jewsons tomo. I’ve 8 pavers to return to so hopefully will get a credit note

Took the lads 70 hours between them and paid them for 80. So job came in at a couple of quid less than £5k. Big money really.

The pavers are Indian stone from jewsons, £22 a square meter and good quality.

Skips picked up tomo and tidied up the front.



Just need it to rain now

Father in law started on the electrics yesterday and we cut out the dead parts of the grass today. And seemed to have replaced them with more dead grass?!

Hopefully will green up over the next few days. Sprinkler set up and hanging baskets put up
