A little bit of landscaping

Recommended Posts

Two gardens to do next to each other, from fencing to patios, planting, block work for a wall and hot tub, shed building and planting.

So first was removal of fences, behind them where ivy, brambles and a wire fence, looking at garden neighbour on left is the other garden I'm doing and on right is a not so nice neighbour so can't go on land.

The garden is about 90ft long, so decided with the amount of timber and cost to have a few fires. Plus the deckings base down the bottom left of the garden was built out of pallets about 12 in total.

Remove of part of the wall, level out around the red robin to add shed. Whilst digging we found a hover, fly wheel, steering rack, ford Orion side skirts and a tyre. Also started digging for patio and graded level other grass as was full of moss and boggy in places, as we where doing that we found a pond liner.

Got a little pile of soil and rubble to remove all 25 ton of it, that I used a wheel barrow to move it from back garden to the front.

That is the reason I wouldn't do landscaping.. Working out materials to quote let alone moving them! Driveways would be all good lol.

The amount of soil surprised me a bit tho, wish there was an easier way to work it out.
