Remember those pavers we salvaged not so long ago? You can read about it here. Apart from saving them from landfill, we had a couple of projects in mind. Once the builders realised that we were serious about salvaging and re-using as much of the materials as we could, they even collected the spent crusher dust (about a cubic metre) and left it in a neat pile beside the driveway.
Last weekend GMan used some of the crusher dust as a bedding for the paving under the new walkway. He then cleaned and relaid the pavers.
The edges are yet to be finished but we are really pleased with how it has turned out so far.
The fresh mulch was the other piece of work GMan did. He dug up the last small area of turf between the end of the native verge planting and the walkway and mulched it.
There are still plenty of pavers and crusher dust left and we have other plans for those so watch this space.
Meanwhile, I was not being entirely idle. I finished transplanting the beans which had come up self-sown in the bed where I grew them earlier in the year.
Here is the corn I planted 3 weeks ago. I think all but one of the seeds have germinated.
Two of the other garden beds have been sown with seeds – one with cucumber and the other with rockmelon and a sprinkling of lettuce. No photos as there is nothing to show yet.
