Landscaping & Garden Stuff

These sections are mostly a record for me, to remind myself how far we've come when I want to burn the whole thing down with petrochemicals.

Garden Transformation

My first ever garden renovation: deck pressure washed, raised bed constructed, topsoil grab-bagged in, selecting and sowing vegetable seeds, trellis installed, 5x 6ft wooden fence panels with concrete posts and gravel boards installed, artificial turf laid, picket fence dog-boundary, patio and sub-base laid - saving around £3,500

Hedge Removal

Old nasty thorny garden be gone! Grinding 3x tree stumps into the ground and removing 2 transit vans of dead crap!

Ivy Removal and Fence Replacement

Our current garden was unoccupied for 2 years before we moved in. We didn't know exactly how big the garden was behind meters of overgrown ivy and other crud. It took 8 days to uncover the fence and then replace it!

We had quotes for over £4000 to replace all 29 rotten fence panels with new, high quality 6" panels, concrete gravel boards and concrete posts - we paid £850. It took years off my life but that cash went a long way in Asia.

Hedge Trimming

The initial tidy up

Hedge and Bed Removal

The previous occupants had a real thing for ugly piles of concrete, conifers and foul smelling hedges. We removed another few vans of debris, hardcore and tree stumps with mattocks, hammers and chisels as well as removing 80% of my sanity.
