This weekend we tackled the garden wall but before we could that, we had a few items to complete. We had to do some minor cuts to complete the pathway, swept in the polymeric sand, sealed the stone and built the frames for the garden wall. Doesn't seem like a lot but with two little ones, everything takes longer to complete. This weekend we had everything ready and got to work. My husband and I put together the frame complete with liner and concrete board. That took the entire afternoon on Saturday, however it was so much fun, the kids played outside with us while we worked and we even had a play date over! On Sunday, we had the family over again and made a day of it. With their help we put up all the veneer and cut the caps. (I love our family!) We were on our own again on the Monday (a holiday for us in Canada) and together we finished the final cuts, secured the caps and the structural supports.
Next week: We will plant the wall garden, add the lighting, setup the inground sprinkler system and start work on the path between the houses. Our goal is to have everything ready for our son's birthday party at the end of August...we're almost there!
I am a creative soul and a mother of two.
