Breaking Up Decking


In the back garden of one of the college properties is an area of decking that has become rotten and unsafe.

Kieron, Ali, Graham and Anna spent the morning cutting up the decking boards with a Makita reciprocating saw and then smashing it up with sledge hammers.

Once the top had been demolished, Simon joined them with the chainsaw to cut up the inner framework consisting of the long joists and the shorter noggins.

All the old, rotten wood was removed to the skip and, due to a planned visit to the University of Oxford Botanic Gardens in the afternoon, the team will have to return tomorrow morning to complete the transformation from an area of decking to a shingle garden.
