Hedges are done

The guys arrived on Tuesday morning and finished trimming the hedges pretty quickly. Then they took down two of the dead birches (two more to go!) and sawed them into lengths I can burn in the wood stove. Then the heavy equipment was delivered.

Hedges are done The hedges are done for another year. The heavy equipment being unloaded out back.

Heavy might not be the right word. The front loader/backhoe, steam roller, and mobile bucket all look like they're the size of Tonka trucks. They fit right in with the smaller scale of many French communities and they get the job done. The first thing the crew did yesterday was to scrape the top layer of stones from the garden path. We asked them to put the used stones under our carport. They did that gladly because it meant that they wouldn't have to load them and take them away.

Hedges are done Work begins on the big garden path. It already looks better than it did.

After that, they spent most of the day digging out about four to six inches of the path, then filling it in with a new base material and an anti-weed fabric. But I'm getting ahead of myself. More tomorrow.
