The new flower bed is almost finished - I have spread out all the new soil, and today we had delivered 7 cubic metres of chipped Poplar wood to spread over the top to keep the weeds down. You can see some perenial weeds creeping through already, but I will zap them with weedkiller before planting anything in it.
I'll need about four cubic metres more of topsoil, and when that's in place I can finish off the low wall on the left by the gate. (Because the wall would block the delivery truck.) I have removed most of the Ivy and Clematis already, but there is some still to do by the gate. That that is left is starting to regrow already; a job for more weedkiller.
