Day 1 of Garden Make-over : The plan was to start work a 9 am, however, like all plans that went astray. Brian (Garden R Us) advised that one lad would soon be on site. Not an auspicious start I thought. I was soon to change my mind. The one lad arrived full of beans and started to dismantle the garden that Susan and I had created. He arrived at just before 10 am and by 11:30 he had gathered the trash that was to be dumped and headed off to Civic Amenity Site to dispose of it responsibly.
Upon return from the dump he was accompanied by two other lads. The work began in earnest then. By 1:30 the potted plants had been removed to a safe place as they would be brought back to be transplanted into the new raised bed or planter as they termed it. Whilst two went with the load the other started to life the slabs, I was amazed at the rate of work he was doing. By the time his mates came back he had approx half of the garden slabs lifted and stacked awaiting their return
By 17:10 all the slabs had been lifted and taken off site, partial preparation was started for the arrival of the sleepers to make the raised beds and leveling of the ground for the relaying of the slabs. It may have been a slightly late start but the work rate of the 3 involved was very high and good time was made. So much so the had finished by 5:30 though it was planned to work till 7pm. On leaving the site site the cheerfully advised I could have a late lie as they would not be back until 11 tomorrow which ois when the timber will be delivered and work would recommence.
The next stage prepped for start in Morning
