We've made a start!Mulch! (this will help to keep weeds down and will eventually break down to make the soil better)
Dean using the chainsaw - see how big the shrubs had grown!
Dean using the chainsaw(can you see the special clothes he is wearing?)
The chipping machine.
Now the shrubs have been cut back we can pick up the litter! ( the shubs will grow back again this year). This type is called Hebe (pronounced Hee-Bee).
To make a start Dean and some friends have chopped back the overgrown shrubs at the front of the school, and turned them into 'mulch' using a chipping machine.
This will give us lots of room for planting new things, and will make it easier for us to pick up the litter!
