    There he was chipping away with hammer and chisel and no safety specs or goggles, silly boy.

    Bench from an old log!

    I actually prefer Davids seat to the ones I posted photos of for two main reasons. First, it is repeatable. Second, there is a sense of humour in its design.

    New project, lawn and border edging plates

    Thank for the tips Sandy! There's always that extra bit of satisfaction when something is completely done yourself. Hopefully one day I will have another garden to test this out on.Thank you @"M"

    Help with new build garden please :-)

    Sorry been on hols for a couple of weeks, but I can see you are doing very well anyway. I can't add much, maybe just raise the cutting height on your mower as shiney says and keep on watering.

    You could staple some thick polythene to the pallet that's going into the trench.
