Stepson and family decided they wanted artifical turf in their back garden and was going to do it all himself so my wife (Ruth) and I offered our services , granted I can not do everything being in a wheelchair but I can shovel hardcore and sand etc . Monday he removed the turf himself and yesterday me and Ruth filled a skip full of the removed turf amongst other jobs . Today we all shifted 2 ton of hardcore and 1 ton of sharp sand ( not sharp sand exactly but then not sure exactly what it was )
Before and after photos

Final pic is me with my leg off chilling with a can once we retuened home
Tomorrow's plan to finish laying the sharp sand , whacker it all down , lay more membrane and roll out the artificial turf for 24 hours to let it settle then friday if we are needed we will help trim and pin the turf .
Knackered now but we really enjoyed ourselves
