Progress at last!

Progress at last!

Rain here since I got up this morning at 5.30. So I got a few bits done on the home front, hoping to get out afterwards. That didn't really happen though. The rain hasn't stopped all day. Not complaining though as it has been a long time since we had a good spell of rain. The quarry man arrived with the gravel. I was mistaken though. Steve only ordered 2 tonnes. When he dumped it out on the driveway I thought there was no way it was going to be enough. But your man assured me it would be plenty. And the boulders weren't boulders, thank God. Just nice big chunks of Quartz, to blend in with the gravel. 

Phase 2 begins tomorrow.

I'm getting a bit excited!!!

Happy raking!

Quite a change to the front garden Jacinta.

So are you going to keep the planting to the edges or will they be creeping in and filling up the presently empty space?

Jacinta D Jacinta D 20 March 2012 16:54:22

Conrad, there will be a feature placed on top of the rocks. And a few random plants planted in the gravel. But not many. This is to be a 'low-maintenance' garden. A garden to enjoy in my retirement - a long way off still. :(

Conrad Conrad 20 March 2012 20:00:12

I'll be watching with interest Jacinta.

Do you think you'll be able to stick to it though, only a few plants? ;-)

Jacinta D Jacinta D 20 March 2012 20:07:44

YES!!!!   This is a low-maintenance garden. I don't like spending too much time out the front. Too many neighbours stop to chat. Not that I mind the chat, but such little time to get stuck in to the back.
