We've made great progress this last week...

We've moved on massively this week, you will see the paving started going in.  I've so many photos that I will have to just stick a photo in with a short comment, or I will never catch up!

Here you can see we've started laying the paving block, it looks wonderful.

Laying Paving Blocks

Ian and James have pain-stakingly levelled and then cut the blocks -I can't believe how accurate and detailed it has to be.

As you can see we're nearly there.  Meanwhile Ashley from our maintenance dept. has "volunteered" to tackle the water feature in Sally's garden.  He's found a novel way of making sure he doesn't get in Ian's way when he's laying the paving...

James has taken on getting the old bench out of the Tropical garden and is now digging out the concrete that's left from its foundations..

And more movement in the Tropical garden, Russ has got the lattice trellis panels in to the pergola, I think  it looks really good like that now.
