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.
This project is in reality an Add-on to a Landscaping Project we completed in 1988
It is a joy and a privilege to be invited back after so long, to add more to the Garden, by extending tired patio laid by my client Peter. I remember at the time being impressed by the work for one who’s day job is in Law.
Needless to say this is no small project now as it has been divided into 3 Categories Lane, Drive and Patio
Situated on a by-lane and in a valley water cascading down the lane has eventually been over running the two entrances to the garden with silt washing down into the garden.. Many attempts have been directed at this problem, only too soon to be overwhelmed by the magnitude and volumes of silt and water. The Lane when we have finished should be easy to maintain and parking areas free from the silt and water. With two gullies and two silt traps designed to handle this amount of water, it is now just for us to complete this stage.
