So exciting, the turf arrived at 7.30am and Raymond at 8.00am, so we were off and running. Raymond commenced the day installing the irrigation and sprinklers for the lawn and garden beds, I started on the planting, and made cappuccinos for the both of us to keep us going. I did as much planting as I could at the time so once Ray started laying the turf, I offered to help. So by the time we were finished I was absolutely filthy, not a good look, as our neighbours discovered - Janine with no makeup, hair not done and gardening clothes on that were disgusting, but boy I felt good by the end of the day despite the appearance and my aching knees, legs, back etc. etc., even managed to mow the back lawn as well seeing I was on a roll.
And where was David, you may ask, well he was keeping the country running at work for the weekend, so I sent him progress pictures as we went, he was very pleased when he came home to see the progress we had made. Here's the pics:
My little hedge along the front path -
Irrigation drippers for the garden beds.
The finished result, we had some turf left over so have started on the nature-strip, to be completed in a couple of weeks.
