1. Starting to dig up the flowerbeds ready for...
2. a layer of plastic and then pouring a solid concrete foundation to support....
3. a double layer of bricks and then a horizontal row to finish it off.
4. It was my job to fill the new gardens with soil, and rearrange the plants.
Once the garden wall was finished, my neighbour from the new house next door wanted this ugly old tree stump disguised, so this time The Space Cadet used leftover textured bricks from when their house was built 4 years ago.
Marking it out.... getting the bricks laid out... then the same procedure, the concrete foundation, and a couple of layers of bricks, fill it with dirt and Voila! No more tree stump.
Apparently Sir Winston Churchill liked to lay bricks as a hobby so The Space Cadet is in good company.
