Library Courtyard Progress Report (IV)

I thought I’d post a few photos showing how well things are going.

The first batch are from a meeting last Tuesday: Paul Coleman had finished turning our assortment of donated bricks into a beautiful speckled central planting space and retaining walls for raised beds along two sides of the courtyard. We met to plan a working party to clear the site in preparation for topsoil (which will have to wait a few weeks until the lime mortar has cured) and plants. We also discussed the next stages of the build – a small covered area and the wooden seats that need to be fitted to the brick work.
