We are very lucky to have a son who has recently completed his plumbing apprenticeship and also happens to be quite fussy about the way he does things (I think that may come from parental influence!). It sometimes takes a bit of convincing him to have a go and it is no surprise to us that we are never disappointed with his accomplishments. It did prove a challenge to his expectations when he hit all the old tree roots, as he has up until now only worked on nice clean new development sites that don’t have this issue. Hence he thought he could have done better with leaving a cleaner, tidy level surface. There has been almost 100 years of growth on this block, we removed 12 very large trees, and just as many smaller ones, all of which still had their root systems buried in the sub surface. Not easy to dig through and leave pristine! The following video is a selection of the progress he made today. We think he has done an amazing job and it is beautiful watching the way he can manoeuvre the excavator in small spaces. Thanks Dave, you are awesome!
