Forward a couple of weeks we were finding inspiration for small gardens and making a rough design of what it could be.
Mr MiH believes in doing it himself (everything - even building a shed). All good but it takes time - sometimes a looonnnggg time. So I said ok for DIY but we take a week off and we do it seriously. My parents came over to look after Baby MiH for the first part (not easy when all he want to do is get involved) an he was at nursery for the second part (the rainy, muddy part).
Who knew it wa so hard to clean up a garden and make it bare again! Of course, it has not helped that our garden is loaded with pebbles and half of my time was spent 'purifying the earth'.
Mr MiH has goy rid of the lawn, again for such a small patch, it took forever - well 3 days. But on Sunday, it was finally done, and new lawn is on, green and healthy!
So phase 1 is over, except that you cannot tread on the lawn for 6 weeks and it needs a lot of attention during that time. Now is time to take care of the flower beds and hedging - my favourite part! All ready for the summer.
Do not worry, this blog is not about to become a gardening one - but as this has been my 'craft' for the past 8 days, and I am really proud of Mr MiH work (I am only his aide when it comes to gardening) I thought I would share it here! Some of my knits have progressed but more on that in te course of the week.
