Wall Drainage and back-fill installed right before it started to rain. I still have a couple of wheel-barrows of fill to put in the corner, but my main concern was to make sure that any dirt behind the wall didn't erode into my back-fill void over night.

Hopefully I'll have the caps done today, and I might go over there tomorrow to build the new fence panel and gate. All that will be left is a bit of scaping and the path. That should go fairly quick.

More wall photos. I might go over there today and get the back fill finished and get the section of fence and gate rebuilt. Where the wall ends, I'm going to take caps and set them in mortar to finish off the run up to to the driveway.

Thanks Guys, . I'm extremely anal about my work, so I'm glad to know that the quality shows.

I went ahead and worked today to try and get the back gate closed off before the local code enforcers threw a fit. The gate needs to be in place because of the pool, and is supposed to be replaced every night after the workday. I had it open for 3 days getting the wall done. I had been replacing it with the old panels, but they were starting to fall apart.

I might not get the job completely done this week. I have Danvers Days coming up this weekend and I need to get my booth stuff together. That and I need to get 4 other bush jobs and other maintenance done this week. The current project is for the mother-in-law, so she knows I need to get other stuff done and actually brought it up before I mentioned it to her.

Regardless, the rest should be fairly easy. The rest of the backyard between the wall and pool is getting rocked, and the path should go quickly as it will be just tightly places flagstone with pea-gravel in the joints.

Congrats Bill on the baby! Hope you get some sleep at some point. At least you didn't have twins like my neighbor did.
