Retaining wall progress

Wednesday, 18 January 2006

David bring another load of concrete for GeoffThis morning Geoff and Graham and two cement Trucks arrived to put the steel upgrights into the ground for our retaining wall.

Sadly, due to over-enthusiastic watering from a neighbour's garden last night, 4 of the holes were flooded and unusable, despite a last-minute bucket-brigade effort this morning.

I helped out with taking wheelbarrow loads of concrete to fill all the holes (I only lost one load!)

So, we will have to get Rod with his excavator back to drill out the 4 wet holes before we can finish the wall. Hmm, I wonder if this will all be done by Winter after all?
