The problem is, by this time of year the shrubs surrounding the pebbled area have dropped enough (small) leaves, dead flowers and bits of twig to require a clean-up. I tried a garden sieve but although I'm sure it would be perfect if separating pebbles from dust and soil it was pretty ineffective for this task.
In the end I did the job by hand - took me most of the weekend! I hate to think how many thoudands of pebbles I've moved one at a time!
So folks, when the job comes around next year, does anyone have any smart ideas to make life easier? Any special gizmos available for hire from anywhere to do the job for me?
