My partner Jade's Cousin Michael lives in the house at the bottom of our garden, and after many drunken injuries we decided build a new fence and put a gate in. His garden is lower than ours so we are going to install some steps.
The bottom of the garden is an overgrown mess, there's an 4 metre tall Buddleia, nettles and docs. The only good thing about it is, it gets the afternoon and evening sun. So i have decided to put a patio at the bottom.
Michael has some slabs stored from when he gravelled his garden for his cars and work van.
I have no idea how to start clearing so i started to roll away the grass, as it seemed to be the tidiest way as you can load it in a barrow, (Reminds me i need to get one) and what i dont use for patching the old mole holes, i can put on freecycle, but it just got too hot! I lost about a stone in sweat.
I will be continuing tomorrow, that's if i am still alive after telling the miss's that her trampoline is exactly where the seating area is going to be.
