Philip's latest job has been to rebuild an old, low stone wall on the edge of our property. The wall had fallen and been overrun with ivy. He and Adam peruse the site:
Here's a portion of the wall he has dismantled, before rebuilding. We honestly need to get rid of that black plastic; you can see it did little to reduce weeds!
A little landscaping is obviously in order, now that we've pulled out the mass of weeds, etc., and straightened up the wall.
