Grass rolled out for lawn

Last week the delivery of 250 square meeter grass on rolls arrived. Before we could roll out the grass we needed to fill up the garden where the lawn should be with plant soil.

After all of the areas where prepared with new fresh plant soil the actual roll out of the grass could begin, it took about one day for 3-4 persons to roll out the lawn.

After the grass was rolled out the watering process could take place, we needed to water the lawn heavy for about 3 hours to get the right amount of water.

Below are some pictures of the process from plant soil to a finished lawn ready to be used.

Cut out round lines in the concrete paving stones

Today we began to cut out round lines in the paving stones benders fantasi thats going to connect the driveway with the entrance.

First we measured out the center between the driveway and entrance, then we draw out a circle line from the center onto the paving stones.

After that began the actual sawing place with a engine driven concrete saw. In a couple of hours we had cut out round lines in the paving stones and the final result looked really well.

Finally you can start to see how the final garden goings to look.

Paving stone in front of house

Today the paving stone in front of the house was laid out, remaining work is to cut out the round radius of the half circles thats going to be in the pavings between driveway and entrance.

It feels good to see how the final results is going to look and next week the hole pavings surrendering the house and garage are going to be finished.

We also ordered 5 cubic meter of Benders Orlando grafit color last week that got delivered yesterday, those paving stones are going to be laid out around the back and side of the garage. Thats because the robot auto mover could cut the grass perfect all around the garden.

After all paving stones are in place is time to joint up the paving stones together with joint sand. We have about 15 sacks and 300kg of Lithomex easy joint sand laying in the garage waiting to be pured down between the paving stones.

Cast concrete pool ground

Today we had a concrete car delivery from Skanska with 8 cubic meter of concrete and could start cast concrete for the pool ground.

Before pouring in the concrete two workers from the pool company aqvis swimming pool mounted the reinforcement into the pool ground. When the reinforcement was in place the concrete car could pour down the 8 cubic meters of concrete in to the ground and that mixed up well with reinforcement.

One hour later after hard work with digging and shoveling the concrete into correct height the work was completed.

Now starts the Concrete cure process that will last for a couple of days, hopefully can the next step to mount the pool frame take place in the end of this week if the cure process goes well.

House and garage pavers completed

Today the house and garage pavers where finished, in this area we used Benders Fantasi in grey color, this paving stone is a bit brighter then the greymix color we used on the driveway.

My little son helped out with his stiga roadracer for a little while as the paving stone dealer. But he did become bored quite fast and quit his job for funnier activities.

The transition between the driveway and paving and patio on the backside of the house is totally seamless. The pattern of the benders fantasi paving stone is really nice and the end result is far beyond expectations so far.

Excavation for the aqvis fantasy pool

This week the excavation for the upcoming swimming pool started. It took almost three days to dig out the hole and prepare the pool bottom with drainage and packed gravel.

We had choosen to build a aqvis fantasy 24 swimming pool as we wanted to have round lines of the pool to harmonize with other round lines of the garden and house. The pool is fitted with a lagoon that can be likened to a staircase. The step is half a meter below the pool surround , it will be a comfortable place to stay on. Below are a picture of how the pool is looking and the lagoon.

NORTH Explorer Low trampoline

As we also wanted to have some fun and jump around in the garden we decided to build in a North Explorer Low trampoline in the garden as we already had a excavator in the garden for some other work that was ongoing.

We found a nice NORTH Explorer Low trampoline that had got good test result and reviews on the market in  sweden 2015.

We dug a hole that was 6 meter x 4 meter, placed a drainage hose, ground cloth and grit and packed it with a vibratory plate. Then we mounted the North Explorer Low trampoline together and placed the legs of the frame on 40x40cm concrete ground stones to distribute the weight and pressure on the gravel below.

Below are some build pictures of the procedure that took almost one day to complete.

The final result is a first class trampoline that is a bit more discrete when it is underground and hopefully we gonna enjoy the North Explorer Low trampoline many years to come.

Paver driveway finished and ready to use

Today the paver driveway went finished, it took us about a week to lay out all of the benders fantasi ground stones. It was pretty complicated to place out the Bender Fantasy stones in correct pattern as no instruction how to place the stones exist from Benders.

Remaining work is to lock in the pavers with joint sand. As joint sand we are going to use Bender Lithomex Easy joint sand. But we are going to wait with that work until all of the pavers are finished around the house and garage and cut for their correct size.
