These two chaps finally turned up to grind away at the tree stumps. There was a huge eucalyptus just on the edge of the patio, and four further conifer trees, all of which dominated the garden and were completely out of scale. These came down late October last year.
Our fences were put up yesterday and today, and there is a small section, which will need to be made and fitted next week. Now I will be able to start sorting out the garden and the planting. Hopefully kind friends will find bits and pieces of herbaceous and perennial plants and bring them or post them on to me!
