Coastal Garden Project, stage 2, bare bones

Today was ear numbingly cold, so it was particularly hard to get out into the garden to get on with this project. Time is precious while my husband is off work, so I had to crack on. I started by laying the bricks in the trench I created yesterday, fortunately I had just enough good ones, leaving three or four very crumbly ones (I pillaged these off a neighbour) I then excavated a little trench to make a path leading up to the circle, with sandstone slabs, and cobbles to go in between. I levelled off the earth and compressed it with my feet, before covering with hardcore. Next went down a 5cm level of sand to form a base for the cement.




That’s as far as I got before retreating inside. I actually popped to the garden centre to get more supplies, then it started snowing, so I decided to postpone the rest until tomorrow. So watch this space!
