I have been away for the week but while I was gone, Paul laid the concrete base for the pond.
So now new weed suppressant going down with new and old gravel on top.
This, the back one, is the bag of gravel we have to move from front drive through carport and about 100 foot down to the new area. We have already moved about a quarter of the bag at this point.
Slowly getting one side done.
So nearly done one side. You can see how the garden falls away on one side due to being on a hill.
You can see how through the lychgate it looks like almost forest. Ignoring the pots and bricks for the pond stored in the lychgate.
I think it appears like you would be stepping into another world at this point, so that's giving us an idea for what we will put either side of this opening.
Alas we have run out of gravel, so will need to have more delivered before we can continue with this side.
The lychgate end
So at least we get to stop now for the day. We'll order another bag but Paul can now start on building the pond in the centre.
