I'd just like to say how pleased I am with the results of all your work. You've transformed what was a very boring square of grass into something that has exceeded my expectations. Everyone that has seen it, family, friends and the odd (very odd in fact!) jealous neighbour has been impressed with the results.
Please pass on my thanks to Carl (or is it Karl?) especially for all his hard work in what was at times very miserable weather, you're right in saying that he earned his bonus!
