Easter weekend and retaining walls...

Jason and his Dad were VERY busy on Easter weekend building a new retaining wall at our house.

This is them digging the first of the post holes.... very hot work (and tiring).

The post holes on the last stretch of path:

More digging:

The first section of wall to go up (n.b. the posts still need trimming). Its starting to look GREAT:

The finished product (apart form the posts that STILL need trimming):

The wall on the corner... there was way too much rock to dig through so we kept some of it. I think it looks great:

Finished path retainign wall from other angle, now we just need to sort out the garden:
