Came home from work yesterday to find my neighbours in the front yard, and half a retaining wall up! How wonderful is that?

Today mid afternoon A was back to finish the job. I helped screw the rails to the posts and dug up the liriope. And now, ta dah! “Looks like a bought one!” A kept saying. We’re very proud.

I love that we were able to re-use the railway sleepers from his yard, and replant the liriope under the camellias. It only cost us the price of the rapid set cement and the long screws for treated pine. It’s also really nice to work alongside someone and bond that way. I’ll take the guys out for dinner when A is back from China; he’s already put in a bid for going to a churrascaria.
