09:13 Grabbed a piece of insulation foam, a ruler and a pen.

I cut out the hill and plinth with a hot wire cutter. 
I Drew out a grid pattern and used a hobby knife and pen to score the tiles. 
I used a toothpick to make the holes in middle of each tile. 
I pushed a piece of broken concrete into the surface to texture it.

I coated the sides in fast drying wood glue which I sprinkled with sawdust and small stones. 
When this dried I coated the whole thing in a few coats of watered down PVA 
Once dry the whole thing was undercoated with a mix of PVA and brown paint.

I took an hour off, to mow the lawn while the glue dried in the sun. I accidentally ran over the baseball hidden in the long grass. It made an impromptu weight to hold the piece still against the wind.

So I slapped on some paint and let that dry overnight. I spent the morning out on the deck adding some vegetation:

It's not the greatest piece I have ever produced. It will however be finished on time!
Cool
