Earthworks and wall

Finally after a year or so of delays the work started on my wall.  The builder used a Versawall https://www.adbrimasonry.com.au/commercials/retaining-walls/engineered-walls/versawall-1

Took days to get the soil out due to the tight space and small machine.  It did rain right at the wrong moment when the soil was exposed but thankfully the soil did not collapse.   I even found my old Tonka truck 🙂 at my parents place. Will post more as it progresses.

This is a photo from the top part of the wall with new turf put down (Empire Zoysia).  Its been awhile since it was put down and I have not needed to mow it yet.   However random Nutgrass is coming up ☹️.  I have been pulling them up by hand, so far so good, but for how long...

Nut grass is a pain mate, I know what you’re going through! Whenever I try to yank it out by hand I inevitably end up leaving the “nut” in the soil ready for it to sprout again. When I bought some nut grass poison I was amazed by how little the bottle was, wickedly expensive too

A bit of green is always nice but that small an area I would have been very tempted to to without grass. Its come up nice though!

I know, I was thinking the same its a small area should I turf it but in the end I wanted to have less concrete around the place.

Yes my brother just told me about that, he is going to give me some, I will try it out.
