Tuesday he spent the day renewing all the rotted frame, ensuring everything is level, there is very little I can do with this job, I normally help pack away tools and sweep all the sawdust, and of course make the tea.
Wednesday hubby was out all day, so no work was done, I was pleased he had a restful day.
Thursday afternoon, he started replacing the long panels and I put the gravel into the top area for my fruit pots to sit on, this is the base for the slate, it's much cheaper than filling the whole area with slate. It will match my herb garden and hopefully look as if it's always been there.
Friday hubby finished the decking, a quick trip out to get the finishing items, slate for the fruit section, and a bedding plants for raised bed.
Moving the fruit pots have given us more seating space with our wooden table, we have extra chairs for this table, so it's now in a much better spot. The white metal table is back in the same spot, this will be hubbies next project, to clean and spray paint white.
I am loving the uncluttered look, my metal birds look good in their new home, all I have is a few items near the back door.
I have put all the bulbs from my pots into the raised bed by the back door, I have added a few bedding plants, but I'm waiting a couple more weeks before I fully plant it. We spent about £700, but got real value for money by doing all the work, I have not added any of the cost to my stash list, this was all done under our garden project spend.
We have just 3 full planks left, which we will keep, all the off cuts will be used in our wood burner on cool nights.
I just have a couple of pots to place, but nothing on the decking, my greenhouse is full, but it's OK, I can wait, even if my fingers are itching like mad to get things out.
PS, any time outside today, I'm keeping my clothes on, it is world naked gardening day, but it's far too cold to even take off my jumper!!!
