Landscaping photo essay

For the really keen(!), as much as for my future reference, this is a photo essay giving a step-by-step guide to how the landscaping was done.

Removing the old grass
Rotovating the soil which was heavily compacted, heavy clay
Raking in sand to improve drainage
Digging out soil from the garage wall
Adding paving stones for future water collection tank

Laying out flower bed borders

New turf in

Building starts on the retaining wall, using sleepers

Working out retaining wall and the levels

Creating path to compost bins and water tank area
Laying shale path to compost area
Measuring and laying out raised vegetable beds, taking in ground level changes
The first kitchen garden path going down
Work starts on bespoke pergola
The rest of the kitchen garden paths are laid
Working out the place for the stepping stones to the driveway and garage door
Landscaping work complete
Landscaping work done by Howlett Garden Services, Sheffield, who I thoroughly recommend. For fuller recommendation, see post (scroll to bottom): Landscaping complete, let the growing commence.
