lesson learned...... dont be lazy!!!
The lesson learned is LIVE IN THE SOUTH!!!

That looks so much better after you dug it out and "defined" the embankment. You do some nice work, and you've got a lot of cool tools!

Today I went back out to the big horse arena project that I did in August of this year. Seeded and hayed in late october, the grass has come up pretty good and ht eentire 10 acre site looks good. They want me to finish building the 8'X16' dock for them as they don't have the time. I put the post in when I built the pond.

Here are some pictures of the site and arena. If anyone wants to see this project from the start, let me know and I'll post away some pictures.





The money shot
