Today marked the first day in which we had to mow the lawn in the backyard. It had gotten long enough in many parts so we had to mow it.
My mower and other tools hadn’t been started in over 3 months. So they took a little while to start, but they did in the end.
The work in the backyard still continues. As you can see from the photos below the brickwork being created around this area is nearing completion. Unfortunately to progress it further I had to complete some drainage works. That has now been done to enable us to continue the wall around.
Once the wall is finished the surface area will need to be removed a little around the drainage area to enable us to have enough depth left over to put the final top level dressing on this area. It will be some compacted roadbase and stones (as seen in other areas of the backyard). Will build some steps and that will subsequently complete the area.
Had a need to use a Core Drill.
Lucky for me someone offered to loan me one they had, and I was most appreciated by the gesture.
It worked perfectly to perform what was required. I really love this power tool. Best power tool ever if you ask me.
