So, the blue-gravel-and-shell project is completed, in the form of a seascape mural on the back wall of the shed extension – see under The Garden tab for more pictures and details of its construction. I am quite pleased with the end result but there is a downside – there is still a lot of blue gravel left!
Ready for a new project, I am deliberating which to start next. I may not have mention the s***** word in the last few days but unfortunately that does not mean I have been ignoring the issue. The liner has now been exposed on the ‘lower’ side in all areas that have not been exposed since the first construction and again the water level is being monitored. The ‘upper’ side is where the bigger rocks and all the established ferns are so I am reluctant to disturb that bank, although there are those that think dismantling it all and starting again would be the better option. Certainly that would give the advantage of greater knowledge and experience.
We shall see. The lure of a new project is of course greater, and plans for the fence at the rear of the clematis colonnade would be quickly and cheaply put into effect (think colour, think abstract…) so that will undoubtedly be next – just need to order my raw materials before it can be started. However, having not done any bricklaying for a month or two the continued presence of the brushwood screen between the blue & white border and the woodland edge border when there could be a wall there instead is beginning to give me itchy fingers….
