This all started back on the 30th of December, the back yard has always needed attention but its just one of those jobs that could wait and always got put back , until I had my  hand forced due to having to pull the back wall pulled down due to it being unsafe. I only really  get weekends and a couple of hours in the evenings to work on it weather permitting.

The story so far.20210226_124900_compress99.jpg.69111ff0922710902d0c8a11fa63acfa.jpg

If I knew then what I know  now lol this job has fought me all the way,  ive taken about 8 ton of slabs, stone and concrete out to get to the level  I need, I will have put 58  concrete deck posts in by the time I'm done and every hole is a challenge through old  backfill and rubble.

Just glad things are starting to come together now,hopefully it'll all be worth it.

I’m looking into doing decking out the back. Not sure weather to composite or just wood deck board? Had a quote for all wood £2900. Then had a price for composite boards £700 😳 I could build the frame it’s just all the little bits like the railings

Composite comes in many different grades like wood,  it can be very hollow  right up to totally solid which is what I've gone for commercial grade but isn't cheap,my back yard doesn't get much sun I don't think wood would do well, do your research and get whatever works best for your situation, ive probably over engineered things but I only want to be doing this once.  I've got not one ounce of bounce lol

I did suggest it mrs wasn’t keen on the idea. It’s 3ft in the air. My baler cord idea wasn’t safe for a toddler apparently 🤦🏻‍♂️
