The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.
Probably too late to change my mind at this point.
@mike mate, rent a jackhammer
Also I suspected (and just confirmed) that the slab would be thin and shitty. It's crumbling almost instantly, I'm mainly going to be shovelling gravel. I'll probably be able to put a full gravel path down the side of the house with this.
@mike what's the project?
@davidoclubb I want a lawn instead of a slab.
@mike beautiful project. I did the same in my garden. Photos to follow...
@mike same on a much smaller scale in front garden
@davidoclubb oh very nice, huge improvement!
... and destroying that step...
Me, I have no qualm leaving things unfinished, when it pertains to my backyard. 😳
@mike You are doing good! Only another.... 5 meters to go? 😅
@tsturm well, the amount left is kind of uncertain. I'm about a third of the way through one of four separate slabs. Initially I only intend to remove two of them, but if it looks awful and I'm not dead I might just rip into the other two as well.
@mike Hammering that concrete must be a nice release after all the crazy stuff in the last few months...
@tsturm yeah I really needed some heavy physical work to do. It helps a lot, now the weather's improving I've got so much to do in the garden.
@mike some duct tape and a scattering of mulch and she'll be right
@Naeva the funny thing is if I just mixed up a little more concrete and poured it over the rubble, it'd be just as good a job as it was before.
if it wasn't for the quarantine, you could hold a chinwag Bring Your Own Hammer concrete pulverising party.
