    It IS easy! Those things can save you a ton of work and time, take it from me. It took me weeks to clear and dig over half the area the digger did in a few weeks in my neighbour's yard :th

    So, @sumi . did you get him to dig for you, or are you left to do it by hand?

    I just spoke to him a little while ago. He's back after the Easter 4-day weekend and brought some fencing stuff. He asked what I need to do here still (a LOT) and said he'll scrape the area I had my vegetables in for me, before he takes the digger out :) That's very nice of him! And very helpful at the moment, as the weeds have taken over that area during the mild winter.

    I went and killed my cellphone over the weekend and need to buy a new one, or get that one repaired, so my budget is not going to stretch to digger hire for at least another few weeks and by then the fencing will make my backyard inaccessible for vehicles.

    Hi! Welcome from Michigan! My mom is from Newfoundland. I always loved to hear her stories. When we visited in the 70s some things were still primitive compared to the US.
