We spent part of yesterday and this morning in the back garden, in order to finally get to grips with the pebbled area. I wore my trusty sandals, now 20 years old.
I did a little bit of weeding too and found some berries peeping out
Dan was in charge of sawing, I was in charge of pebble arrangement and we both did a bit of digging. We decided to keep everything at the same level as the path as much as possible, so we dug out lots of earth to allow the pallets to lie flush.
We've not planted anything in them yet, but I think I'm going to transplant some of the alpines from the main bed, I think I'll be getting lots of new plants tomorrow so need to extra room. My parents are having a garden revamp and they have offered the contents of one bed to us. Hopefully they'll be coming up tomorrow to look after my nieces while my brother and the two older children "Ride The Lights" in Blackpool (I can't believe illuminations switch on is this weekend!).
I'm very pleased with the wood and stones together., and I even got a chance to sit in the shade and watch Dan work!
Things are coming together slowly.
