Six on Saturday – May 29, 2021

….thanks to the Propagator for hosting Six on Saturday

Six on Saturday is all about recording our work in our gardens and posting six photos related to the job. This Saturday was very busy at my house. During the week I had 2 tonnes of gravel and a tonne of soil delivered to my driveway.

Saturday morning my crew that normally cuts my grass came over to earn a few extra dollars and help me out at the same time. Prior to Saturday they had already made three trips to the house to pull up the weeds and level the area at the back of my yard.

After laying down the landscaping fabric they started to haul the stone to the back. It took close to three hours to finish the job but I’m very happy and can’t wait to find a fire pit to set up in the middle of my gravel sitting area.


While the boys were working with the gravel I spent my time hauling soil from the driveway to the raised beds, planter boxes and garden beds. I also planted a few more flowers and herbs and moved stones to create new areas for planting. I was dead tired and a bit sore by the end of the day but it was worth it.
