Level two...

My work on the slope at the rear of 'Le Bourg' continues...I have just finished adding a second retaining wall halfway up the slope. This time it is a 'dry' wall using the stones lying around the garden - it took a lot of them! I used the Roman method of large stones at the bottom and reducing in size the higher it got.

I did give it a top cover of chaux, so now it works on two levels (excuse the pun) one as a retaining wall and also as a path to access the top of the slope for weeding.
