Transformed this corner of our yard into a neat fire pit area with a surrounding garden.
First step was removing the trees which we use a chainsaw and a few trailer loads to get rid of the branches and logs.
Second step we ended up hiring a mini excavator to remove the roots and 3 tonnes worth of dirt to get it levelled with the ground.
Third step using treated pine wood was building a retaining wall to hold the garden.
Fourth step was levelling the ground for a final time and then using landscaping sand as a base for the pavers and then used salt n pepper stones to finish it off with pavers to hold them in.
Great little entertainment area all year round.
Thank you so much for sharing to Workshop your transformation of the corner of your yard.
It has certainly opened up the area and I am sure will give you so much more use.
Was it much trouble digging those existing trees out?
Haha very painful. Ended up having to hire a mini excavator to dig it up for us, quite a few roots underneath all that dirt.
Sometimes that's the only way with mechanical force.
You did well.
