My wife's birthday is coming up , she enjoys this part of the yard and asked for some pea gravel in the low spot to set a lounge chair, it's always in the shade and being the lowest area in the yard and the trees shade the sun , it takes a long time to dry out after the winter and spring rains. We've had no rain to speak of for several weeks and it's still soft. I decided to suprise her with more than just pea gravel so I went rock shopping, got some crushed 411, and got after it, we continued to ring the trees with stone and plant some hosta and inpatients , I got the dividing wall built and some of the 411 down, last pic the inspector is checking for proper compaction. Hoping to get the pea gravel and the large flat stone down next weekend.

Nice work! That will be quite the gift. She'll appreciate all of the landscaping and pretty rocks. It looks like a time consuming project and she'll appreciate all the effort that went into it. :thumbs:

Will this mean that you get another tractor, attachment or start on the east wing of the museum? :thumbs:

 

Looks great - hope you get a little rain - been very dry here this summer as well.

That is going to look amazing when you get it finished.  I was just about to upload some pictures of my current landscape project, but it is looking pretty lame compared to yours

Ah don't say that, I'd like to see your pics. I enjoy looking at others fruits of their labor regardless , always appreciative of seeing what someone's done and how they did it. Many ideas of others especially when depicted have giving inspiration when considering a similar undertaking.This allowed considerable GT seat time and being able to boast "see I've told you how handy these are to have honey".Thank you for the kind words . I'm almost done with it

I did post pictures of my project, but under its own thread. See "bought a chipper/shredder and put it to work".
