This is the 800 kgs of concrete we pulled out from the eastern side of the house a few weeks ago. This was all the homemade path down the side, and I have been itching to dig it up for years!
I dug a lot of it up with a crowbar, before Erik weighed in with the big gun - a hired jackhammer. At first I thought he was just being a boy with a toy, but it proved a wise move as some of the concrete further down the side of the house was seriously thick. It would have been hard going with my crowbar…
Worst part of this exercise was that we couldn’t barrow it up due to the sloping block and retaining walls. So we carried it up by hand.
Not sure that things actually look better down the side - now I am more conscious of the hard graft ahead to actually landscape it and make it look nice. But at least the path will no longer function as an aquaduct in storms.
