Some readers will recall that back at the start of the year I decided to do away with the front lawn. Since then I have been a busy bee and with the help of my sons the transformation is nearly completed.
The pile of bricks isn’t an art installation but the start of the path that we have been working on this weekend.
My eldest has been a star and spent the morning digging a trench for the bricks to lay in and he managed to get the bricks for 25p each which has made a huge difference to the cost and allowed us to be more generous in the number used. The next step is to cement them in place and then to put gravel down on the path. I intend to use the same gravel as the driveway so it blends together.
From being embarrassed by my front garden I now love it – as my son says it is now a proper garden rather than a small lawn with some plants around it!
