My ta-da moments begin

The transformation of the chook areas has begun....and nearly finished!

This [above] is how it started off - with the runs still in place. UJ dismantled all this wire and framing.

There were two chook houses and a big compost bin, as well as some very overgrown shrubs.

Sunday afternoon I had got to this stage: chook houses were there still, awaiting removal, and the bottom half of the compost bin was still there, with black gold still waiting to be collected up and moved.

By the end of Sunday, it was clear and ready for the rotavator man.

Tuesday lunchtime the rotavator man was here and busy and then this morning, in a shower of rain, the turves went down - and what a transformation.  I have a really lovely little secret garden here behind the workshop, which is a beautiful sun trap too!

This is the other long section which stretches the length of the plot, front to back, and down the side of the house.  This is "before" the folks got busy.

And this is how it looked in the afternoon sunshine.

Wow! I am so impressed with what has been achieved.  Now I need to save up for a ride-on mower, I think [just joking!].

wow what a difference and so much room. You may need a ride on mower!!

The garden looks so much bigger now, great job :-)

That looks brilliant, well done.

An electric lawnmower should be fine, as it's so flat as long as you do it religiously every week throughout Summer you would find it pretty easy. However there are gardeners that would drop by every week for a low fixed rate to do it for you if you haven't the time. You could even put up an advert on the local notice board for someone.

Or a goat? x

That does seem to be what people want when buying a house so should help when you sell. It looks all neat and tidy

No goats!
