The aim of the project is to to tidy up the edge, reduce bark spill onto pavement and create a manageable strip of planting and colour. Trying to disrupt the membrane as little as possible, or re-lay it where possible. This done by laying approx 20 treated timber 'sleepers' (not real, new softwood) some stacked as land drops toward bridge.
Thursday 10 Dec
Start a bit of prep digging around the edge and take delivery of approx 20 x treated timber 'sleepers'. Any help welcome.
Friday 11 Dec
Position sleepers along edge, set back a bit, round to wonky box. Some stacked.
All secured by driving a steel peg through them into the ground.
The soil is back filed behind them, maybe some new soil added.
