Cutting blocks for the ball court border

Building this third border for the ball court is much more labour-intensive than the first two, which were created simply by pouring concrete into a wooden mould, and then removing the mould. (These two sides have solid concrete trenches underneath them, whereas the third has concrete only under the fence posts, as shown in this photo from four weeks ago.) Concrete blocks have to be cut with the band saw and then cemented into place.

Work started on the border for the Quiet Garden path.
