I bet the neighbors love it when the snakes move to the next property!

After seeing some of the pics with the traffic, probably better you didn't mulch everything. When I mulch anywhere near a road, I'm constantly having to stop plus people love to stop and watch which creates a problem when things get slung 100 ft.

Cleaning up the excavator.

Has to be frustrating with the rain. It's nice to see something green, though. It's turning into the desert where I live but a little rain is forecast. I don't think it will look that nice here for a long time, though.
