Martin, I will come with a low loader and move it to my garden, looks great.

Jacinta D Jacinta D 04 April 2010 21:27:50

Ha ha yea, looks terrific. But Martin, how big is this bed?

MartinB MartinB 04 April 2010 21:34:34

TEn yards long by six feet deep, you can use these dimensions to plan your own. :-)

Jacinta D Jacinta D 04 April 2010 21:37:11

30ft? Jesus, Martin, that's nearly half the length of my whole garden. Ha ha. Ok Fran, I might be going with YOUR idea. Martin, you or Deborah are REALLY going to have to arrange a guided tour of your garden, with Garden.ie members getting VIP treatment.

Do I only invite my friends Jacinta? I only have five at present. All garden ,ie friends get in for free and get tea and stuff.

Jacinta D Jacinta D 04 April 2010 21:41:45

Am I one of your friends?  When can we come down. I'm off next weekend. Ha ha.

MartinB MartinB 04 April 2010 21:44:13

You were the first to welcome me and ask to be my friend, thanks for that.

Your garden is so bursting with spring. It looks fabulous.

Now that natural stone wall is what I need to retain my bank and lawn at my patio.  I'll do it myself, but is the stone expensive. Looks great in the limestone. I love it.

MartinB MartinB 04 April 2010 22:34:42

Hi Ivor, the stone cost me nothing as I used local stone from old knocked cottages. I live in a lovely place called Dromin  where we are old fashioned and helpful to each other and I was allowed to help myself. I believe stone can be expensive. I know some people who use stone that they dig from their own garden.

Jacinta D Jacinta D 04 April 2010 22:38:24

Sometimes the best results can be obtained from getting the materials for NOTHING. And I think it means more to whoever is performing the task. In more ways than one.

MartinB MartinB 04 April 2010 22:49:06

Yes Jacinta, it feels that there is love involved because it is a gift, and it always gives one a good feeling afterwards.

Jacinta D Jacinta D 04 April 2010 22:50:23

My sentiments exactly. :)

Looks wonderful and to reuse stone either from old buildings or from the ground is a real bonus.
