Ali, Joe, Ady and Graham spent the day continuing to transform the back garden in No 17. Whilst Joe and Ali built a very rustic stone wall at the bottom of the garden, Ady and Graham continued to clear all the rubble from the garden.
Once the wall was finished, all four joined together to move the soil, moving it from the highest side over to the low side until, eventually, the garden was level. It is now ready for the grass seed to be added for the lawn.
