This is the third stage of the project but due to weather we have started on it before stage one is completed, partly because losing some of the spoil that has come out is easier to lose it on the lower garden, it barely made any impact, more pictures to follow. 

A week of good weather has certainly helped us to push the job forward, with both 900 deep gulley traps set in and the dished rain channels now in, it’s been a bit of a mammoth task getting 2 x 6” land drain pipes down the back of the retaining wall I built in 1988 and under the foundations to a huge soak-away in the lower meadow but all done now so onward and upwards to get the rest of the project completed.
