Coming along slowly

The back few feet of garden and path are coming along slowly. Most of the bricks and slabs are up, concrete has been removed and is getting added to bags to pay for disposal at our council rubbish site.

The weed membrane has been laid, and a thin layer of gravel dropped on top to keep the wind from lifting it. The rest will be added soon:

This is the extra bit of garden we will get from doing this job, mainly where the bags of rubble and rubble are sitting (2 feet to 2 1/2 feet wide and about 15 feet long). 

Soil still needs to be packed behind the edging stones to stop them falling over:

Half the bags of manure on the right are for this area, the rest for the raised beds and fruit cage. To the left are bags of soil conditioner, again for the whole garden:
Then we can go and get plants that will thrive in a very light shady soil. I also hope to buy a particular crab apple tree that shouldn't get any taller than 3m.

    1. We just need to find a way to stop the borders falling onto the path but once that’s done, will enjoy planting it up.

  2. That's going to be a lovely big border once you get it planted up. We have a crab apple at the allotment ( it was there when we took over the plot). The blossom on it is always spectacular.

    1. They certainly seems to flower well. If I can get the one I would like, the apples are quite large.

    God bless.

    1. Me too. It will have to be mail order I think.

  4. The weather has been amazing, maybe even a little too warm for gardening. It's all taking shape.

    1. Hopefully. Plants will get added next year as well to help hide the fence a bit.
