doing some more clearing on the pond project












dug some messed up footings last week. bad soils it took 220 tons of 57 stone to get them back to grade.



















did a little wall this morning. landscapers tried to extend a wall that I build last year and it failed the first big rain so look who is back.












then back to the pond site








fixing my bent 4in1 bucket

I can't believe they thought those stones would stay in place without fabric.
