Been real busy with school lately but have started on some random jobs around the house. Just broke out of freezing temps this week so season will be a little late. Also did some field rolling for my high school lacrosse team. This was my first attempt at any sort of drainage work and it was for my parents so i'm open to pointers but keep it friendly. This was not for a paying customer and I am aware I have a lot to learn about this kind of work. Pipe ran from a downspout was extended 50 feet to reach the bottom of a hill and get out the houses shadow. 2' radius x 2' deep drain with #57 18" deep. Builder dumped the pipe at the top of the hill and just threw a few inches of dirt over it.

Finally back, been having trouble posting pictures for a while now. Didn't do much mulch this spring but mowing has picked up a lot.

What's that, small gate or installing split rail fence? Reason I ask is I am going to be bidding a fence like that next week. I'm still not sure if I want to do it, but the homeowner is insisting. I take care of his mowing and landscaping so he I guess doesn't want anyone else. But I am still dreading it...

New small gate, used to be 8' opening. I don't mind split rail fences.

Oh ok. Yep, I hate when going to estimate someone and seeing a gate my ZTR won't fit through.

Yeah, it was a learning experience. Now I know it should have been 18. I did dig the trench to 18, the pic makes it look shallow, if i did it again i'd go to the correct 22 total depth. The home builder however did not feel the need to even attempt to meet code. It was buried 2" at the start of my trench.
