Last week we told you about our newest big project – rebuilding our dilapidated garden wall.
Progress is slow. A few of the bricks are easy – but most of them complete pain to remove. The lower the wall gets, the more difficult it is to work and my poor back is starting to really ache from bending over.
When we first started working on our Edwardian garden wall, we set ourselves the target of taking down and cleaning 80 bricks a day – the amount we’re actually managing to do is more like about 40 a day.
As we already mentioned, we’re not rebuilding the wall ourselves, we’re just cleaning and stacking the bricks ready for our builder.
The lower the wall gets, the worse the rest of the garden looks. Except for the neat as the little brick stacks everywhere is a complete mess!
There is dirt, dust and rubble everywhere.
We’ve only taken down about half of the wall, but there are already two huge piles of broken bricks and, not being able to control ourselves we’ve started another garden project!
Here’s a bit of a preview.
Of course we’ll be sharing more details with you soon, but basically our whole garden now resembles a really messy building site.
Are you planning any changes to your garden this year? Do you always finish your projects before starting new ones, or are you like us and just can’t help starting new projects all over the place without finishing any of them?
