Just to show you why I deserve a gold medal, having made a garden at all.
Some of you may remember when I dug out the one foot edging border at the front of the house how much rock and concrete I removed (by the bucket load).
Like the rest of the plot our lawn is laid on rubble and something extremely crunchy! Cinders? Coarse grit? Every time you put a fork or trowel in it you get a nice crunching sound.
Ken tried to put in a new rotary line spike. The plants are so tall now where we have the old one there is a perpetual fight between flowers and sheets.
He started with the idea of just hammering it into the ground - we both knew it wouldn't work but he is such a Pollyanna. Hey ho, struck stone. We prodded all around the area with a spike and continued to hit stone and came to the conclusion it was over to digging mode.
The hole is 20 x 30 cms and 50 cms deep. He removed approximately the same volume in brick, stone and slab.
