More soil, more work

Bricks and the house

Our house, before bricking.

I think the grand total to date was 21 tons of topsoil, roadbase, and garden soil. Yesterday that tally rose to 28 tons, with another six sitting in our front yard ready to go today. I must admit though, the yard is already looking different – no weeds, no bare soil. I’ve even started on the brick edging with the left over bricks from our build. Amazingly though, we’ll be able to edge our entire garden bed with bricks, and will still have almost a palette of bricks left over.

So…in an attempt to get rid of our leftover bricks (Whitsundays Range, Brampton colour), I am offering the lot to anyone who needs them, and can move them for us. If you’re interested, comment on this post with how you’d use them and the winner gets them – free. Please note, they’re in our backyard without a way to get anything bigger than a wheel barrow in.

If you guys have any other questions, feel free to contact me with your questions.
