Day 4 of Garden Make-over : The team from Gardens R Us arrived at 8:15 and immediately started to work on the extended raised bed/planter. In order to carry out the extension they had to clear out the contents of the shed, demolish it and then take all the residue down to the tip. Upon return they built the extra length taking it almost to the end of the fence. Next was prepping the ground to have the slabs relaid, as well as line the side of the planters. By lunchtime they had the planter filled with soil, hardcore spread in garden area . then it was off to get soil and slabs. then from 1:30 until 7:10 they slabbed 3/4 of garden area..
Again I was impressed by the teams work rate. They covered a lot of tasks between 1:30 and 7:10. As they worked I began to see the garden take a new shape The addition of the raised bed added space by allowing the transplant from pots and very large pots at that. The transplanted plants being at a higher level immediately removed the claustrophobic feeling of overcrowding. I’m looking forward to tomorrow when with luck all should be completed and the grand unveiling of the reborn, made over garden shown to all
