Paving The Way to Fishing Anglesey

A tenuous title at best I know but it was the best I could come up with. Finally it stopped raining enough for Phil from (yes ladies – he will garden naked for an extra £60 per hour) to finish off the paving to the rear of our house today.

This first photo is before anything was done, as you can see it was in a bit of a mess and needed sorting but it was one of those things things that never rated high on the ‘must do list’ until this year.

Before - needs a bit of a trimPartway through showing the hardcore bedding
The second picture shows the first sections of Indian Sandstone being laid on the hardcore base. One option was always going to be for us to do the clearing but with the amount of junk they removed and the hardware needed to clear I’m glad we let Phil sort it all out for us. As mentioned earlier, the weather played ball today and Phil managed to get it finished. If you need any garden landscaping done it’s worth giving him a call, very reasonably priced, good service and a job well done – cheers Phil.

All done, now all we need are some pots...

I’m sure you’ll agree that it’s a lot better, although a little bare. We intend to put a lot of pots and tubs full of all sorts of plants, some of them native wild ones to help out the local wildlife.

As for sea fishing, or any other type of fishing for that matter, we’ve not been out much as we’ve been saving up to go to Anglesey for a couple of weeks, can’t wait. Even though we’ve been many times before it’s still as exciting as the first few times we went.

On a completely unrelated note I saw some Cinnabar Moth caterpillars feeding on the Ragwort in the car park today so if I remember the camera tomorrow I’ll try and take a few photo’s as they’re quiet spectacular in their yellow and black stripes.

    It seems such a shame, indeed a crime against nature, to pave over your garden like this. Pretty soon the whole world will be covered in concrete.

    While I 100% agree with what you say Andrew the garden was a mess and produce 2-4 inches of water next to the house for 3 months at least during winter as the previous owners filled in a ditch rather than do it properly. Give us a couple of years and you’ll hardly see the paving.
