Right a small update of progress on the hillside.

I decided that the hillside should have random rocks emiting from it so as usual i have cheated.

I went to raid the wifes Dog Poo thing which she has been collecting rocks from her vegetable garden to place around it she hasnt noticed:lol::lol:

I then cut some bits out and set them in the hillside and some are glued directly to the hill face i used some gripfill grab adhesive.

I have also done a small test strip with burnt grass and tried to add a few gorse bushes of which i need more and afew other varietys.

Heres a couple of piccys



This one shows my test strip



cheers Brian

The dog poo thing is like a small green dustbin that fits in the ground you surround it with stones and rock then you drop your dog poo in and then tip in water and some bio activator you then add poo then at the end of the week flush with water and it puts nutrients from dog poo in the ground like a mni cesspit really.

I took my rocks from the top of the dog poo thing:lol::lol:

I don't think you'd get much in the way of nutrients out of them, Max.

Well i must say what a brave lad you are Brian, :pathead. God help you when she finds out :mutley.

I also add that i think you are doing a fine job. Like Jeff says you builders never cover things before you do a job, no wonder we get charged alot, half the bloody bill is you lot cleaning up the mess you made after you finnished, :roll:.

That hill is growing well :roll: I like the different colours that you are blending together, it is going to make a huge difference the back scene when you finish it all, and as I have said before will really make the loco's look small against them, spot on :thumbs

That sounds a handy dooberry Brian!  I have always been wary of chucking dog poo in the septic tank in case it messes up the active bacteria etc in there (there is no mains sewage at Godolphin).  Where did you get it?

Production on the hillside has come to an abrupt halt due to running out of coarse grass and i have had to order 3 tubs so i cant get back on that till they turn up.

So i will be switching to something else in the meantime.

I have no shortage of jobs.

cheers Brian
