Greenhouse 1 Electric fence

Greenhouse build. This features laying foundations, bricklaying, paving etc. ready for the installation of a Swallow greenhouse. I am new to bricklaying so this is a bit of a voyage of discovery! You’re never too old to learn!

Electric fence. After a violent attack on the lawn by an army of badgers, I needed some sort of deterrent.

I compare a Screwfix brushless drill with a previous brushed version.
