To spend few hours to do labor work brought my great happiness. Today, I made a brick road in my garden by myself.
The 1.1m x 3.0m corner at the inner most of the garden was full of wild grass. I didn’t have the right time to cut the grass, so they grew wildly. I felt embarrassing at the very beginning – I know to left grass like that is very bad thing for neighbors, but recently, I found the grass of my neighbor is even worse. :-)
So this weekend, I decided to use bricks to cover the area, and leave some space for flowers in the future.
I found when you do it by yourself, it is much cheaper. This is what I did.
We drove to Hengda 恒大 Stone Market.
All kinds of stones were sold there in the warehouse way.
We bought 36 piece of 200mm x 400mm x 10mm bricks. They are heavy! It took me quite some time to move it to the back of the car and to the garden – two piece at a time. We calculated again and again how heavy it is to ensure our car is OK with the stones at the end. The conclusion is, the 100kg stone is not heavier than three persons sitting in the back. So we were on the road.
Removed the Grass and Lay on the Bricks
We removed the grass, and laid on the bricks. We didn’t have time to pave the ground yet. Will do it later.
It looks not so good so far. I hope when we paved the soil and lay the bricks again, and put some grass seeds, decoration stones in the spaces, it will look better – I hope so, at least.
