The Patio Is Down, Repeat, The Patio Is Down!

New Patio – Yay!!!

I’m so excited to share the photos of my new patio 🙂 I knew I was going to love it and I absolutely do 🙂

Ant’s been working on it every spare moment he had. He’s had to go to B&Q numerous times to buy more sand (he couldn’t buy it all in one go because he didn’t want to overload the car). It took more sand than expected. That was because in between digging out the area and laying the slabs, we’ve had some torrential rain. It made the area much lower than Ant originally intended. He ended up having to put back some of the soil he’d dug out!

The bricks on the worktop are to hold the BBQ. He’s taking it off the legs and securing it on the bricks.
The gas BBQ is going in the big space. We’ll be using the spaces underneath to store things like charcoal and wood.

He’s going to build a seat and little table on the wall near the grass so he has somewhere to sit while he’s cooking 🙂

When this area is done, our next job is to hire a skip and get rid of the mountain of junk in the garden, in the sheds and in the greenhouse.
Just getting rid of the rubbish is going to make a massive difference to the garden.
