So Close – Part 1 complete

We did it! We completed part 1 of our last wall. Of course the last one would be in 3 sections, but technically all one wall. So, as excited as we are about completing this large section, we do have 2 more sections of the wall to complete. Unfortunately, it will likely be in the…

Discontinued

We have blown through our rock pile very quickly once we got filling the new wall. I quickly called our go-to landscaping company to schedule another load to be delivered before the weekend and luck would have it that they could get us some on Friday. Perfect! We could do a section on Friday and…
