Before And After - Gardening With A Saw
April 15, 2020 12:35 PM

This August I have lived in my house here in Nättraby in Sweden for five years. And I have made a lot of renovations and updates to it. But I never thought about doing what I did a few days ago, until a few days ago. Gardening with a saw.

Before and after - gardening with a saw.

I was outside in my backyard, just pondering about things and listening to music in the sun. I had recently cut the grass for the first time this year. And there is a spot that is so messy to cut in the grass. For some reason I just started thinking about that spot and how I wished there was a way to remove the grass from there. Because I know there are some nice stones underneath there, and it would make cutting the grass so much easier.

That is the messy spot I mean, to the right.

I have tried to remove the grass from there before, but the grass was too stuck to the ground so I gave up. But suddenly I thought, hmm! What if I use a saw to cut it from the stones. I have an old saw. I took it out, and yes! It worked! It was hard work, but a lot easier than all the ways I had tried before. And so worth it, cutting the grass is going to be so much easier now - and quicker. Yay!

Below is the result!

My wheelberrow to collect all the removed grass.

I took the saw and sawed the grass sideways between the stone and the grass.

After a few hours. And after I had sawed away the grass I fine tuned it a bit between the stones and then I took a broom to sweep the stones.

The final result! Yay! Now these stones are called Öland limestone.

The Öland limestone come from Sweden's second largest island, Öland, and are a condensed and bedded limestone whose origin dates back many million years ago. The Öland red and gray limestone has been mined for more than 1 500 years. It has been used as a building material for churches, other monumental buildings and decorations in Sweden and in countries around the Baltic Sea.

I would guess the Öland limestone found its way to my garden in the 70s or 80s when it was a very popular stone to have as a decoration in your garden. And I too think it looks quite pretty, even today. :-)
