Yeah I know.

Spent ages building that thing. I bonded sandstone to the inside of the top piece so it could be left loose but not kicked off...

Should have just lowered the gutter pipe or put a shoe as you say. Oh well..... lol

Granite. I bought it from syndenhams in the end and paid in the region of 100 per bag inc delivery which I thought was very good. Especially since their prices are not great generally.

Just finished this today. The panoramic photo makes it look wonky if you zoom in due to patching it together poorly and me not being able to pan and stay level.

Bloody back breaker of a job. Under priced and behind schedule as usual... lol

Had to level it high cos garden was wonky and to put it down at ground level would have meant he would never be able to landscape level again without unearthing the fence on the other side to reduce levels.

Why that type of concrete post rather then a morticed?  Thats a lot of bolts to faff around with, plus its 6inch wide at the post.

You get the look of continuous wood from one side and you can step down. Mortised concrete doesn't allow you to play with levels.

Bugger to do though. Easy with wooden gravel boards but the concrete ones don't give you any freedom for errors. I wont be doing it again for less than 250 per bay. Posts are heavy AF too. Heavier than mortised.

Not sure what you meant by 6 inch wide at the posts

Why cant you do different levels with morticed posts?
6inch wide at the posts, is that you have 2inch of gravel board, then the post behind.
