Hi all it's a late night or an early morning, but anyway, I did like the double raised bed that Monty had ,but I think I would use scraped scaffolding boards they cost between €2 and €4 each not very expensive , if you want to build a garden path but don't want the expense dig out your path to 10 or 12 " secure boards either side and fill with builders sand to a dept of 6" pack it well and lay your cobble or reclaimed brick on it and tapper down ,fill gaps with dry sand cement 6 to 1 mix .

Hi ,may i suggest that you screw the trellis to battens of wood  2x2 lengths in first that way if you need in the future to paint or maintain the fence you won't have a problem removing any plant material.

Hi all, If any of you Ladies remember Charlie Dimmock , she used to garden in bear hands as well ,but to avoid soil and other debris from getting under her nails she would drag her fingers across a bar of soap so when she washed her hands the soap would dissolve hence clean finger nails . Maybe Carol doe's the same.I hope so.
