Is it only a week since I shared a summerhouse shot and talked about our garden work starting on the patio Seems like an eternity. An eternity of mud, the constant grind of a concrete mixer and the endless cups of tea of coffee I’m making for the guys doing our patio.
What was promised as a 3 or 4 day job has escalated into at least a 2 or 3 week epic saga 😬
In a nutshell we selected porcelain/composite slabs which unbeknown to us can’t be laid like a granite or slate slab, they have to be laid more like an interior tile on a perfectly smooth concrete surface, and they can’t be hit or bashed into place either. So a wooden frame has had to be constructed and filled with concrete which obviously takes a lot longer than laying a base of sand and hardcore. Something our garden company failed to mention when quoting for the job and giving us a timescale.
The good news is we aren’t being charged for the extra labour just the materials but what seemed to us a small job is just epic now, half our (massive) garden is covered in crap and our lawn is now a churned up mud patch, our neighbours hate us for still having numerous tonne bags of sand on the pavement, the garden centre sent the wrong fence panels which will have to be changed and I’m spending a fortune on coffee pods and chocolate digestives to keep the builders happy 😭
Will share some progress pics on stories later if you’re not already bored of my garden woes! .

Each cover is designed to fit most standard 10" hanging planters.
Made with outdoor fabric that is rated for up to 500 hours of sunlight exposure, resists stains, and is water resistant. To maintain the life of the fabric, bring indoors when not in use. Easily clean by wiping down or hand washing with warm water and a mild soap solution. Simply rinse with clear water to prevent dirt from embedding itself into the fabric.
