Ya I need to go back and get some finish sod pics. There was alot more soil that went in there. The entire yard is on one plane after sod. Its hard to see the water meter in the one pic but that is how high we went up with the soil. Even with that its just an out of place wall.

I like the price point on the Rockwood blocks.
I use to absolutly love the rockwoods, they were cheap looked good and man do they go together quick. But, lately there quality control had gone way down hill. The versa lok is a lot nicer fit and finish.

A few updates.

First is what my guys call the jungle yard. Pretty self explanatory.

Had to use the little guy again we only had 50" to work with so it was a bit tight.

Someone must have really hated doing yardwork lol

I remember there was a house like that around here a few years ago.
People lived in the house but it was so over grown that it looked abandon. Sure enough the house caught on fire one night. The firefighters were in no big hurry on putting it out as everyone thought it was abandoned. Both the people died in the fire that night...

Thats scary to even think about.

The people are super nice. They told me when I first met with them we are not outdoors people we go to work and then come home and go straight into the house. Kinda nice though the maintenance crew will now get alot of work from this one in the future.
