Not to be outdone by the weather, other garden projects have been completed!! The most needed was soil retention around the summerhouse. Keeping costs down, were were lucky to have Chris Genever on hand who came up with some unwanted slabs so we didn't have to buy many. The really genius idea was attaching the leftover tops cut from Victorian pather edgers when we were paving around the well last year. Chris came up with a seriously cunning plan and having cut off the corneres, he then angles each edging top to fir and alighn all around the summer hous! After all - concrete slabs aren't much to look st and these look quite pretty for a sort of 'out of the way' spot in the garden. One thing's for certain, it beats having soil against the wooden sides of the summerhouse and makes access for painting and maintenance so much easier!
We liked our look so much, we even wondered if there shouldn't be a market for slabs with a pattered edge. After all, soil retention is such a common use for them!
