Over the hill

We're off to the airport  tomorrow... can't believe how quickly the time has flown. The big bonus was the willingness of our visitors to help us to get rid of this mound...while still having a fun holiday.

It looks really small, but in reality it wasn't. We tried to shape it over the past year or so...

but it didn't work. The weeds just grew again and we didn't really know what to do with it.

The decision was made to level it, took a few hours a day for over a week, but it was worth it.
This photo gives an idea of how large the area was.

Reclaimed and almost ready to seed. The wall will need  building properly, but for now we can enjoy a well earned rest.

We riddled all the soil and used it to top the flower beds and the dips in the lawn. We still have a pile left.

Thanks, Michael, Emm and Aimee (and Bev)'ve been brilliant!
