Weeks back, I start in on a new backyard project. I am going to change this:
Into a new walled garden or flower area, so the massive root system of that bush and I are going to have a little showdown. Smart money is on the MountainMan >:)
I dug around the root system with a shovel and then needed to borrow Ron's pic to get really aggressive!
The pic made quick work of it but yeah I got sweaty
In the process of leveling out the ground
With the ground leveled, I forced some manual labor on the kids :)
And started to lay the wall.
Had to borrow Ron's saw and buy a diamond blade to cut some bricks for the wall edges and also the rounded corner. Also had to lay sprinklers, put in 3 new heads.
Then filled the area with about 5 inches of new soil and compost mixture, and put a construction adhesive under the capstones and now we are ready to plant some vegetables or flowers!
