We took this picture after getting home on the longest and hottest and most difficult day of the year. The first part of the job was to dig out by hand 50sqm of buffalo turf, then repair the retic, prepare the ground and lay fresh turf.
I will never ever dig turf out by hand again, especially when its 38 degrees and without a whisper of wind. If you can’t get a bobcat into your backyard then you will need to dig it out yourself as its just not worth it. It took 2 of us 6 hours just to remove the turf – something a bobcat would have done in an hour.
Luckily we were off on holidays the next day as I needed it!
