I wanted to use some steel as an edge for the courtyard. Davis Salvage Inc were not far from work and happy to cut steel to any size you wished. Annoyingly I ripped the arm rest in my car, dashboard, and scratched the rear getting the steel inside. I was also on my way to a client meeting in formal clothes!
Edging in place with mulch. I held the steel vertical by cutting grooves into some wood and setting wood in soil to stop it moving.
We picked up a ton of pea gravel to fill courtyard. The concrete pad is rarely used so we’re filling the whole area up.
Removing fallen leaves will become a frequent occurrence, one of the frustrations of having such dark mulch.
