Preparing For The Chickens
Whilst Kieron and Callum build the new stone edge, the rest of the team start to clear an area in the corner of the Provost's garden in preparation for the arrival of chickens next week.
The New Holland tractor with the grab attachment is used to tear out all the old shrubs and their roots. The woody material is taken to the chipper pile to be chipped at a later date.
The grap is then used to rip out the ivy which is then taken to the skip. Once cleared the grab is used to break up and drag the soil around the area, then raked by the team until a level bed is created. (What a wonderful tractor attachment the grab is!)
