|Apparently we assumed incorrectly that since they wanted the location|
marked it meant they were lining the pipe up for us.
|Starting on the backfill.|
|Can you spy the end of the pipe?|
|Looking up the new driveway towards the road (and the|
abandoned house across the street).
|The mound isn't as impressive as it was in 2005 when I stopped|
working on it--a lot of it eroded away across the parking area.
No nests were sighted in the trees prior to felling.
|I jokingly asked a good friend "How many Rednecks does it take to fell a tree?" |
She responded: As many as know about it.
They're good kids, and they were a tremendous help!
It was just too humorous to not snap a pic.
|Down goes the first one.|
The following Wednesday 18.5 tons of crush-n-run gravel was delivered (between rainstorms) and DH spent all morning spreading it on the first length of the new driveway. At least one more load will be needed (if not two) to finish the drive and the parking area. One of three brush piles (from the felled trees) was burned the night before the gravel to make sure it wouldn't be in the way. A parking shelter is also to be added. Once all of those deliveries are made I can start working on beautification of the new drive area, as well as prepping for the orchard to go in next season.
[I need to get pics taken of the mound area, the brush piles, and the length of gravel]
