This now means a complete revamp to our garden and lawn area , the first to go has to be our decking then one of our two hedges which run the entire length of our garden some 90 ft in all.
We decided that the first to go would be the decking we had out side the kitchen door, so with the help of my son Ian we set about removing it. Shown here with half the decking removed. Soon after the remaining deck was removed.
Now the hedge, It was 2m in height plus a bit more and in placed 1m in width. ooh it was hard work not just cutting it down to ground level and disposal of which we hired a shredding machine, but hand digging out dozens of stumps, by the time we had it all out and piled up in the front garden you could not t see the front garden.
Area shown from end of the path where the decking ended and along side the lower end of the hedge, stumps awaiting removal. lower photo showing the lower end of the hedge before removal.
The concreted area outside the kitchen door down to the end of the concrete path in the foreground of the photo is where we built our conservatory. The fencing I'll show in the next post.
