That reminds me of my late father's house, the new owners decided to remove the front garden wall, patio and concrete block flower beds........... it' took them 3 weeks to remove the 3 to 4 feet of concrete that the old man had used as a base for the front garden wall, patio and concrete block flower beds, still, I'm sure they appreciated the exercise
I was kidding, 99% certain UK and to get a mini-digger bogged in like that requires vast quantities of water for a sustained period turning ground into soup.
Usually a burst watermain - occaisionally new groundworks elsewhere ( but nearby ) diverting natural natural groundwater drainage or springs.
we had a little job for a client, just clear away the remains of an old asbestos garage ( all done legally)
break up the slab
and put some steps in to the lower part of the garden
the quote was qutie clear on what we are doing and any extras wil be at an hourly rate
just as well
the thing came down easy enough
asbestos cement panels sealed into sacks and taken away
concrete broken up and into skip
then move along to remove soil and start cutting away for the steps
or not as the bloody air raid shelter reared its ugly head!!!
that filled 2 builders skips, 3 days with the big Kango and sledge hammers and picks
Rolawn do the best turf and soil as I found out. Put down a bit of the soil and then lay their turf on top, look after it and you will have a lawn fit enough for the England cricket team to play a few overs on.
Thanks. Not quite sure what went wrong there. The fire trench on the right ended with a fully bricked flight of steps heading down to...??? Given the costs racking up, I didn’t bother exploring further.
