Bluestone rounds to replace lawn


Bluestone rounds to replace lawn

For my first post I thought I'd share our current garden project. Our backyard has lots of lovely trees but it gets a lot of shade and we have an energetic dog, so our lawn didn't last. Instead of laying more turf we're now replacing it with bluestone rounds. 


We got a start on the project last weekend but mixing the concrete by hand in a wheelbarrow was slow going. We've now borrowed a small cement mixer which should make things a lot quicker and easier. 


We also realised we should have put a string line down and left it. Some of the first rounds we have laid are a little too low. 


Anyway, I'm happy with how it's coming together and think all the work will be worth it.
