Here are the tools
After mugs of tea and digestive biscuits - the raised bed is dismantled
The slabs come up
The digger digs
Twelve years ago when we had work done - it was nice and quiet. Men with spades and shovels and muscles - now it's a man with a noisy digger - at least I can turn my hearing aids off and not hear a thing!
The 'boss' said that we wouldn't have enough soil from the trenches to fill the pond!
Bricks are appearing!
The 'boss' was wrong - the soil has not only filled the pond, but covered all that corner of the garden and more besides!
End of day one - looking like an archeological dig!
