It’s been a long time coming but last week this happened
then on Monday this week two lovely lads came and quickly started building the wall
The bricks were transported into position by wheelbarrow
Thanks Richard, for the photo, silly me forgot to take a before shot!
They worked quickly! At the end of day one, I realised that the wall was going to be too high, so in the morning I mentioned this to the boys and they agreed so it was decided that 3 rows of bricks less would look best
PS this is part way into day one, the foundations were already there for a double skinned wall (I think that’s the correct terminology)
We have plenty of work to do, wish these weeds would give up!!

Nice boots…I thought they’d make a decent pair of planters!
Nice smile from Richard 🙂
This reminds me of Peter Pan!
Two happy builders! They’re a great team
When we’ve saved up some more money, they’re coming back to sort out the driveway and replace the decking, I can’t wait!!

We are delighted with our new wall and gate…who’d have thought that these changes would bring so much joy!
Thank you Richard & Steve, it was a pleasure having such happy workmen in my garden!
Now the hard work begins….garage doors first I think!
