Patio 2 – Removed

Written by stephen gale

It is a sunny Saturday morning and what better to do than remove a patio.  We are due in Halifax this afternoon to look at log burning stoves, so we only had a few hours.

This patio is slightly smaller than the other patio, but came up just as easily.  We stacked the slabs in the back field using the pickup to move them from one location to around.  There is probably a couple of tons of stone here between the two patios that must have covered at least 20 sq m.

To get the truck into this end of the back garden we needed to remove the wooden fence.  Jo has been dying to remove this fence for some time, so it was a good excuse.  By now we are pretty well-practiced at removing the fence posts using a tow rope and the pickup truck.  There is a small amount of fence to be removed, but this needs to wait until we clear the corrugated steel sheets that are leaning against it.

 

The second patio has now been removed together with the fence at this end of the rear garden.  You will also notice that the soil and rainwater pipes have also been removed.

The slabs from both of the patios are now neatly stacked in the back field out of the way.
