tidying up the Rear Garden


Well I have some big plans as i mentioned already.

I have measured the South end of the rear.

I have three new black composters to replace my brocken green cube, pallet heap and pile without container.

I have today managed to get the cube empty and beguen removing the pile without container. Depsite the fresh snow fail and hard frost.

All watched very carefully by two robins after the worms. When I went to the black composters they went onto the old heaps. When I moved to the new bins they hoped onto the old heaps.

The fresh snow looks fairly dirty now.

Next steps to either finish the compost or get the levels planned where the water feature will run.

Looks like the rockface will need some consolidation it might be on the slip on the east side.

Missed a week here. Didnt get much done toady – went to work.

Last week though got another 5 or 6 barrow loads of compost into the new bins and checked my measurements. Began looking at how to sequence the works, materials and waste.
