My husband made this.
He's lost weight and gained new muscles where none previously existed.
He's never worked with bricks before, never built a wall. Nothing. He's kind of stoked with his effort and the end result ( the pics on the right ).
We're not real sold on the white pebbles as yet, but think once some hyper-green planting goes in ( not for a while ) it will look great. We actually preferred the 'slatey' colour of the crushed rock base, but it was probably a bit too fine and easy for a cat to use as a giant litter tray .. so um .. no.
Wish I had some 'before' pics of the side of the house to share - they're somewhere. It used to be a weed jungle down there.
I'll have to take a look and see if I can find them..
It's RAINING today !!!! I've got all the windows and doors open to air the stifling heat out - it smells and feels fantastic, and the lawn and garden are getting a good wetting - lovely. However, supposed to be dry and 33degrees or something again tomorrow. That seems to be the way we get rain these days - just a day of it, then 15 more of crackling heat...
Told a porkie on Friday and called up the Gas company again to say a stranger had come up and knocked on my door to ask if I was aware of the leakage ?
Guess who's here today and working in the rain ? Noice.
Still more to come though - the driveway guys were here this morning and have laid down mapping/boundaries for the new driveway and path to the front door. They'll be back tomorrow to pour the concrete. Exciting !
