Well at least the first part of the project. The tree stump had to be removed from beside the concrete steps, and a new garden will go along side the deck.
Hmmm! what's the best way to tackle removing the stump, without breaking the concrete steps. The deck doesn't matter as it is falling apart anyhow, and will be replaced.
Little by little the stump was removed, without any damage to the steps.
Team work here.
Our friend picks up the pieces of stump and roots and places them into the bucket of the backhoe, which my honey Mr C. drives to the burn pile.
It is good to have a friend who is very good at manoeuvring the large pieces of machinery with such precision.
The stump and a lot of old vegetation which was growing beside the deck, has been removed, and there is all the lovely cleared land for what else, but a garden.
This project is going to have to be put on hold until I finish the new garden I am working on, on the far side of the house.
