This is over two days!
We got early Thursday and went to Willamette Greystone for stone and Home Depot for lumber and gutter supplies.
The backyard was ready - I had spread the bark dust earlier in the week.
Doesn't the yard look great!?!
Even got a rainbow from the sprinklers :o)
I unloaded the lumber while Josh got some work done: 40 2x8x8 and 10 2x4x8
This is the front yard where I am going to put the stone down for a little sitting area.
1200 pounds of flag stone from Willamette Greystone.
Josh came back out after the lumber was unloaded and did the heavy work for me, did I mention 1200 pounds?!?1
Now all the stone is stacked, waiting for me to put it down in the front. Another day!
Pieces cut and laid out, ready to put together. O helped a lot. At first.
Box #1 all done and ready to go out in the yard!
Boxes #1 and #2, box #1 partially filled.
Annie supervising in the sun.
Doesn't the box look pretty?
Josh unloaded most of the topsoil and wheeled it back to the beds where he dumped it and I spread it.
Box #1 is done!
Box #2 is filled and #3 is ready to go!
Day two: #4 is ready to go.
Oakleigh decided two days was one too many to help, so she just watched.
Boxes #5 and 6 filled.
Box #7 - last one ready to be filled!
Took us two days but it was totally worth it. I still have the front yard to do, we need to put up the gutter when he comes home again and I need to start putting plants in the beds.
