A sweat draining day and indeed on drainage work the whole day.
With the granite chips available, and a full workforce supplying them, tons of granites are being delivered into the trail via wheelbarrow.
Max, Nik, KeeMeng, Alvin arrived early to get the remaining Bakau lining ready for the wheelbarrow.
With the first ponding in sight of the rock garden, Nik and KeeMeng got to work immediately with a log, granite chips drainage structure.
A big hole is dug up. After removing much mud and have around 5 fallen logs/branches sitted in nicely, the hole is then fill with granite chips, and the lined with recycled bakau wood, pounding in the side to sit the logs and granite nicely.
water management is the order of the day.
we moved on as the afternoon goes, digging up and securing a few more water catchment. Justin came by and help with the digging and draining.
We finish the day at the bottom of the snake slope.
With barely enough daylight and granite chips to go on, it’s easy to call stop then.
We are standing on top of 6in of mud, the worst section that badly need draining.
