Happy Hardcore

I started this post ages ago, uploaded all the photos but never added any words.  I’ve a feeling there was a reason but I can’t remember what that was.  Anyway, despite it now being February, I’m going to leave it with it’s original date.

This is the Teram Root protection which was one of the conditions of the planning permission – the idea is that it distributes the weight of the vehicles so they don’t crush the roots.  Of course we had to excavate an extra 6in of roots to install it but that irony seems to have got lost

Hardcore going in and getting compacted down.

First use 🙂

Drive and Car

The hardcore is a little deep at present so the drive can be used – once the extension is finished a bit will be scraped off to make space for the finishing material.
