Day 2 of Garden Make-over : The plan was to start work a 11:30 am when the timber was due to arrive. The timber would be 21 lengths of sleepers and some wood battens to protect fence. This time things did go to plan, but not for long though <grin>.
Jamie was by himself and he unloaded all the heavy timber by himself. Unfortunately the driver was unable to assist and Jamie’s fellow colleagues were at another site which had a problem. Prior to waiting the arrival of his colleagues he cleared out the proposed working area ready to create the protection batten and installation of the timber to form the Raised bed or as they term it the planter. Fate had other plans, Jamie received a call requesting his assistance at the other site as the problem was bigger than previously thought.
Full of apologies he explained what the problem at the other site was and made arrangements with me for an early start on the building tomorrow. He assured me that the planters would be in place and the garden fully slabbed by Thursday with hand over by Friday. Mind you I think one cat was pleased that the work came to a halt as he then spent most of the afternoon in the unfinished garden. He had explored the changes to the garden this morning and passed his approval at the new design by have a roll in the sandy soil then settling down for a nap. The current state may meet Felix’s approval but as he is not paying the bill the garden will be reconstructed (but I’ll make sure he has a wee dirt patch for himself) 🙂
