Project done. All my crap is gone.
We decided to use mulch instead of rock in the upper bed along the house as we agreed that it would like way too flat and hard with all the rock and wall blending together.
I'd say the mulch looks great.
I'll take better pics when I can. I need a really good cloudy day and a couple of rain showers to wash the rock down good.
As I left, the last thing I did was take the mini and the forks and "fork" the yard to lift the sod and my compaction. Worked well. Ended up punching about three dozen holes in the yard.
