Someone or something made away with all of my stumps from the area we cut-out in the spring!..oh where can they be?
This is one of my favorite types of work…the kind where I leave for work for the day and return home to a completed (and very different) project. It took 3 hours for a large excavator to clear out the stumps from the area and leave the ground in much better shape (while walking through the area there is only 10% chance of taking a step and randomly breaking an ankle now..down from 70%!..) and (almost) ready for a garden next year..once I clear out more of the trees from the southern side.
We also got another tandem load of fill delivered so that we can fill in any low-spots in our ‘lawn’ area. We have been busy little beavers attempting to remove all of the large-med rocks from the lawn in preparation of laying down some topsoil and grass seed..according to some of the dierections I have read you are supposed to stay off grass seed for 3 weeks after putting it down..which means we need to create a walkway of some sorts and devise a way to keep the pooches off the grass..well at least we won’t have to worry about relaxing for a couple of week!
..and just for reference here is the area before we began cutting ( and putting in flower beds and such):
