Below is some of the lovely edging we installed. It really defined the garden bed that it surrounds.
Below is some of the almost finished section of paving that we replaced. We also widened the path from 2 pavers to 3 and also added the brick line that you can see towards the right hand side. This particular section is a slight decline which is why the aspect of the picture may seem strange. Note the difference in colour between the new and the old pavers. Such subtleties are noticeable and are the reason that there is a trade in reclaimed building supplies.
The person I've been assisting with this is stonemason Jock Langslow www.stonecarver.com.au . He is a local and lives near my home in Macedon. Hopefully I'll be doing some work with him in the future building some stone retaining walls in Kyneton. The experience I gain from working on such projects combined with formal trade training should ensure a good grounding in this sort of work. It's something I want to break into after finishing my horticulture training and it will help me in the future with garden design.
