Finished dry laying the patio

Follow-up to More and more digging from Kieran's blog

I've not had a chance to do much work on the garden after work this week as I've been busy. However, this evening I managed to dry lay the rest of the patio to see if it fits…and it does!

Now I need to lift all those slabs up again and re-compact down the sand with a compactor I need to hire this weekend. Then, this weekend I'll get a cement mixer and start properly laying the patio…yay!

    Looking good Kieran. I expect a fully detailed blog of the laying process, so I can steal your technique when I lay my new patio! (When the next batch of round tuits arrive…)

  3. Hey, I've got a round bit just like that in my patio!

  4. Yeah, it is getting there now, I can really imagine it finished now. I'll try and document the actual laying process as best I can…I hear the next batch of round tuits might not be until next summer ;)

    Michael…blame my other half…it was her idea :)

    Don't forget to put a sun dial in the middle of the circle to finish it off Kieran !!

    That is good news. Gives me 12 months more procrastination – excellent.

  7. Looks like your plans do not include a shed…good job when you read the latest report…

    Small everyday home improvements, such as building a garden shed, were unlikely to increase the value of a property by enough to push it into a higher council tax band, the VOA added.

    …taken from the latest story re Council Tax re-evaluation link

    Time to hold off any impending loft extensions too I guess. ;-)
