Despite the start at the dentist (clean bill of health), it has been a good day. GF headed into Chi and picked up some new football boots. Several of the upcoming tournaments are on grass rather than astroturf - so it is sensible to get some boots with proper studs.
Once back home GF returned to the challenge of the garden. This meant selection of a list of landscapers to0 approach, and more refinement of the design. This all went well and the design now exists as a 3D model in Sketchup and can be viewed from every angle.
A trip to Travis Perkins allowed us to look at some of the options we would have for gravels or slate and helped clarify some of the choices.
