There was a clear winner today. ‘Pike’ was only a memory from the day before; whereas the wall took my full attention and was finished – one course was completed in the morning and the final topping of bricks in the afternoon, bringing victory to the wall.
Good weather made a lot of difference and sunshine brought a ‘good feeling’ factor.
My next job will be to fill in the trench either side of the wall; then fill in the large area that will form the foundation of the patio. At first, I’ll have to make a layer of hard core and on top of it a layer of gravel. Finally before laying the flagstones I’ll have to make a smooth bed of Diall Recycled Glass Paving Sand.
