Another dry day for garden work when Chris arrived with his beast of a stump grinder! I could immediately see he meant BUSINESS! We had 2 tree stumps to grind out and down in the Henclosure, another 4 big Bamboos.
Having watched it make mincemeat of the first apple tree stump, I was itching to have a little go! My turn came with the cherry stump. It was more of a nibble but at least I was allowed to have a go! Chris, of course, handled it like a pro and it was soon on to the bamboos. What would have undoubtedly taken the whole day if he had been digging by hand, took just over an hour! What an amazing machine.
More soil was removed and the entire Henclosure levelled in readiness for a thick carpet of woodchip. Now I'm wondering what to plant in the way of low evergreen and far less invasive shrubs.
Actually a Sarcococca springs to mind. I wonder if one would survive chickens???
