So Monday I posted a picture of a small tilled area in the yard. This are was grass. I refered to it as a GT dead spot. I coudnt mow it, and it is to visible for RoundUp. My beutiful wife decided after finding some supplies in the shop ( she was clearing a space for my beer fridge) to add a water feature to the yard. Great! I figured I would get some shovel time over this one. But she supprised me. She did this entirely on her own. She used the Gt for hauling dirt, leaning the tools on, and most importantly, a place for me to sit while she worked. She works very hard in our yard but I thought this would prove to be too big for her. She proved me wrong. She did this and made it look like its been here for years. Thank you Honey for adding this great feature to the yard. You did a great job!:thumbs::thumbs:

Great job. Please tell her. It was nice that she incorporated the GT into the project. It really looks nice. Hope the beer fridge is full now.

She did some really nice work there, and it's great, that you were able
to sit by and watch, but ???
The picture is a bit fuzzy.
It looks like it might be a burial plot.
I've never had much luck, watching the wife work.
Watch your back.:laughingteeth::laughingteeth:

Looks great Matt, think I'll email a link to this to my wife. Only one question is still hanging out there though. While you were sitting on your can, watching your little bride dig the holes etc., did she stop and bring you another cold beer from the beer box?

You have a nice wife to let you sit there on your rump while she did all the work LOL. Your wife did a great job on the new water feature and I am glad to hear she incorporated the gt's into the mix. :thumbs:

That is nice!! My wife is planning a simular project for our back yard. There was still snow on the ground when she told me" All those rocks you think are a pain to mow around(the prevoius owners put in the yard) are not to be thrown in the ditch!! I want them in the backyard for my fountain." But somehow I think i'll be doing more of the work than you did.
