As an added bonus, his work created a place where we needed a rock retaining wall. In my imagination, this wall would offer endless landscaping opportunities... or at the very least add some interest to the front yard. The only downside is most of my outside "images" involve work for the husband. Fortunately on this one he didn't seem to mind.
We headed down to the local stone yard and selected a tumbled limestone called Dover Shell. This stack was delivered Saturday morning.
After the rain stopped and the area dried up enough, Bart got busy on this weekender project. He measured, dug, selected, hauled and leveled. Repeat, repeat, repeat!
As I watched and took photos I could feel some words bubbling up and pushing to get out..."would you like some help?"
My job was backfilling behind the stones. I felt a compulsive need to try to separate as much dirt as possible from the gravel. ho ho hee hee...I'm afraid, I wasn't much help.
About as much as the cats....
The hubby finished up on Sunday evening.
