Four Days

On Monday morning Ady and Joe started work on another overgrown garden in one of our outside sites. These pictures don't show you what greeted them as they stepped out through the back door, the patio could not be seen and it was so hidden they didn't even know there was one in the garden! A fifteen foot Ash tree seedling was hidden in a dark corner at the back of the garden, behind a ten foot Forsythia.

The Forsythia hedge was about ten foot tall, as high as the brick wall in the photo above. Joined by Simon and a student helper, Oscar, on Tuesday, they continued to bring the area back to order and resemble a garden again. Graham joined them on the third day, power washed the newly discovered patio and along with Kieron, started to add a wooden edge to the borders.

Today, day four, the last piece of edging was put in place. Ali and Simon added new pointing to the patio slabs, leaving just a delivery of stone, due tomorrow, for the finishing touch to the borders.
