A little stone picking

Spent 2 hours picking stones. Weather is unreal bad at the moment. I manged to get out to cut the new (er) lawn last night, took a good 40 minutes and that was without collection of the lawn grass.
I am thinking that to get a full cut of 2 two lawns as they stand I will be looking at the guts of over an hour and that is still without almost the same amount of area to be stoned yet.

I managed to get another area, about 30ft sq stone gathered and the grass seed down. Still a good few hours to be done to close off that section, especially when you only have a wheel barrow and rake.

The lad John who did he deck with me is going to now do his daughters, she saw ours and loved it! So had to go a calling to Fergal again!!!!

All done!

Well its done, great job!
Dad and John were over and installed the handrail and spindle frames they made up last night. And also installed the timber seat.

It looks very well I have to say. Now its my job to sand the handrail and varnish!!

Have to go tomorrow and buy the kit to install the outdoor lights.

Pics are taken at dusk, so not the best!!!!!
