Work began Monday on our little backyard project 

We agreed that our tractor could be used lightly in order to save a few bucks on the quote. Of course, there isn’t really such a thing as using a tractor lightly, and soon we found they were putting it to the test.

They’re currently removing all the stones on the little ‘rockslide’ heading down to the barn to start with a clean slate. Then, they’ll rebuild a rock wall out of the boulders and found granite (it’s everywhere out here – YAY! – so we can save on shipping in stone), backfill with new soil, and add real steps heading down the hill. This will double our ‘yard’ size, creating a nice space for our patio table, lounger, etc…

Man vs. Boulder 

And… maybe not…
