Gardening, Hiring Help in the Garden, How To, Make over

Hiring help in the garden 6th edition

I am over the worry of it now and on the downhill stretch.  There were enough bricks reclaimed to remake the wall, and it looks great in light yellow colours of the old London Stock bricks that the house is built in. The path beside it we started in the crazy paving that was down before.  However, I was using them only because they were there.  I don’t really like the look of crazy paving in a Victorian house setting. The Dex came up with a plan.  He had only just started and the cement was still wet.  It takes quite a time to fit the jigsaw puzzle together and we reasoned that laying concrete was quicker.  Dex’s master plan was to inlay white stones in the cement.  I was due to rush to Sussex on a school pick up run in an hour, but chose to rush to the local Jewsons to buy more cement and white stones.  I couldn’t quite picture the white path, but took a chance that my taste and Dex’s would match. I flew down to Sussex, but had a bad night there imagining the path to look like a long trail from the top of a grave. The next morning a friend commented that that he had never seem a garden makeover with a graveyard theme….that helped.

But it was lovely and I am so pleased.  It still has to have a resin coating so I think it will wear well.
