Garden Renovation: Days 21-24 – Laying Brick & Permeable Pavers

It is hard to believe, but I think we are actually seeing the light at the end of the tunnel with the contractors’ portion of the construction. All that is remaining is part of the permeable pavers in the classroom area. Then we have a lot of work to do building raised beds, filling them with soil, and getting mulch in between the beds.

They finished laying the brick the end of last week. Doesn’t it look great? You can see one of the commemorative bricks here.

If you look hard, you can see all the packed base material there for laying the permeable pavers. I was more interested in the cool shadow pattern when I took the picture!

They are still working on laying the permeable pavers. This picture is from when they were just getting started. You can see the color and size pattern beginning to lay out. I will have to wait until a cloudy day to get some better pictures of the whole classroom area. (We also need a name for that classroom area….hmm…)

It may not look like much yet, but we marked out the locations for the raised beds yesterday, and we are planning to start construction tomorrow! I’ll try to have pictures to post on either Thursday or Friday.
