Weekend Projects

Dino tried to hold in a sneeze.....he exploded!

A rare moment this weekend when we weren't moving dirt, and had time to sit down for a second and admire the view.

Boys earned their keep, moving piles of dirt.

140 cubic yards of fill, 5 cubic yards of peat, 45 cubic yards of top soil. Plate compactor, barrel roller and manual tamper.  They were busy (and sweaty).

Here's what it looked like before.

And after. Started with a deep sink hole, filled it, and tried to level the lower end of the side yard just enough to make it useful.

Hydroseeding company comes on Monday for the final step.

Lot more useful area now on the side of our lot.

Other two small sink holes in the front yard needed filling as well.

There's never enough dirt. Didn't have enough to fill this one as much as I'd like, but it will have to do for this year.

Lots of topsoil added, hopefully enough to get the grass to grow on top of all that rock fill. Now on to other projects.
