More Landscaping

We've had a very busy weekend trying to get as much of this sprinkler system installed as possible. We'll have one section finished tonight, so I'll order the turf for Wednesday I think. We live on a hill and it gets very windy sometimes, so all the black compost is now all over the bricks and paths. It's been trampled inside the house as well.

We had to hire a jackhammer to help with digging the trenches. The hill we live on has very granity soil and lots of floating rocks under the surface. Farmer Phil decided to dig the post holes for the proposed deck with the jackhammer while we had it. Each 600mm hole took almost half an hour to dig out. Farmer Phil was very tired and sore after hanging onto the jackhammer for hours.
