Days 30 and 31 – Monday 22nd and Tuesday 23rd August 2016
Work concentrated on the retaining wall behind the new kitchen and the new step area that will give us quick access to the garden. The soil is clay and heavy, and although it has been well compacted over the years before its disturbance for this build, it needs to be held back with a strong wall.
As the height of the garden from the new patio is well above the ground level, about six steps will be required. This means more digging out to create space for the steps, also taking into consideration the width of each step and the drop of each step.
