it's in very dry shade so it's taking longer for the plants to establish than i'd hoped. also, i need to re-cement two of the 'cap' stones, they came loose when i sat on them.
Thinking of creating something similar here after how good you've made this thing!

Cement though... might learn how to do corbelling

worth mentioning - we bought one pallet of the stone, and it's sold as i think 4 square metres of walling; but i think that's in the hands of a decent mason, who actually breaks the stone down into smaller pieces as they work, and faces the back with normal blocks; so will actually get more efficient use of the stone than i did.

all in, i think it was €250 for the stone (that included an eye watering €80 delivery fee), €80 for the soil to bank up around the outside, and probably under €40 for sand and cement, and the blocks i laid as a foundation.

My big task if I had any skills, which I do not, would be to construct a tiny bridge over this stream by our house (where the pallets are), into our little orchard area. All overgrown right now but not too hard to cut it back and tame it a little.IMG_20220810_134506.jpg
