I've begun the chicken wire of the dropped section. I have some photos, but haven't found time to upload them.

Hopefully tomorrow.

Dave.

In order to get an idea of what it would look like, I got some newspaper and some water in a roasting tin. I dampened the sheets, but not too wet, and spread them on the chicken wire.

And with HST.......

I've also begun the embankment......

I realise now that there's not enough room to put an embankment on the far side. :?

Thanks,
Dave.

Hi PTM! I'm very interested to see some more pics... I've got some mod-roc here, and I'm planning on buying some chicken wire tomorrow to have a go at making some kind of embankment...

What are you gonna cover the chicken wire with ?

Mod roc. If you think it's easyto use chicken wire, it needs to be quite taut.
