So…. an existing customer rings me and say… we have moved and want the garden levelled!
confronted with a gradient of 20:1 over 60m its a big task with a mini digger ( limited access) clearance was initially done and old tree stumps removed, digging down in clay is always a lottery and yup a big 150mm land drain came to light, now going to be completely useless at the existing height, a temporary stone fill trench was installed to take away the immediate water, new drains will have to be installed when the conditions allow.
The first and main tier was created before winter set in to allow the sub-soil to start settling before being landscaped in the spring of 2021
This is an ongoing project to be completed in 2021
