Today a portable Laurel Hedge arrived on the back of a lorry  :lol:

About 30 reasonable sized plants which they have planted in the foot of the previously destroyed hedge - hopefully these will grow quite quickly.

Well after quite a bit of persistent nagging, and putting on my cross face, at long last they have made good the front garden.

Three men for three days, 250 square metres of turf, three jumbo bags of top soil and a lot of watering.

Quite cleverly they used a turf lifter to scrape off the top layer and give an even surface to prepare for turfing.

Day two was Friday before the Bank Holiday

Because of the holiday break they were concerned that the rolled up turf would yellow, so laid it out and soaked it, and I kept it wet over the weekend - lucky they fitted that fire-hydrant  :thumbup:

So today they returned to finish off. I must say that the finished job is pretty good considering what it was like  :thumbup:

 :jaw:

The lengths poms will go to to get out of having a bath  :lol:

Look on the bright side at least you were ot in the shower soaped up and it dried up leaving you looking like a Sid James skit from a Carry on movie  :lol: 

 :Doh: as an home owner again these are things I had forgotten can happen and landlords don't come into play (in a way thank goodness)

Andrew sorry to see this happen out the front we already have a fire hydrant access as well as the main and sewerage and on fence boarder with next door at least 3 man holes  :(
