Here is another example of fence post using native stone. The guy worked on this for over 2 months. The fence is about 200 ft long and cost $33k. It had wood slats on both sides ....Kinda funny this house is at a dead in
a neigborhood next to a holding pond. When the workers kids got out of school they were all over there working.....

Slats on each side would be nice for trimming.

I will take pictures when it is all completed...apparently there are several walls not only around the property but within the condo complex. This is a cramped up site. The parking barn is being built first.
This is the crane for the parking garage.

This is what you want to see in June and July. So far so good. It didn't get into the 90 until mid june. Then it went to 106f for two days then a COLD front pushed thru and it is holding. We get sea breeze and ocassionally a shower.

This happened today and it just came down in buckets we was wet
all over. Nobody has rain coat in truck in summer. I am running with
the little Ford since one of our diesels has a primming problem I haven't got to yet.

We had the closed trailer and I drove in and shot off the propane
and the damn brakes wouldn't hold and I slide out of the trailer
We did get one of the tiger cubs in the closed trailer.

Something got up on the media and apparently burned to the ground. It was a big flame since the tree nearby was scorced

one of our HOAs. Put on liquid nitrogen and compost tea.

It isn't mine it is made by Landmark and they add in fertilize. It is an organic thing where you start with compost in big vat with some other stuff and stir it for a few days. What you get is microbes and you drop them into the soil. They improve the soil.. This year Landmark started sell it in 250gal vats to farmers out east who put it on pasture. then they can claim cows are organic when they sell. These microbs can't be kept too hot and don't like clorine so there are a few things to watch when handling.

I think it might be a lot better than drop compost on lawn.....

This is one of our low water use gardens we put in at an HOA and couple months ago. Unfortunately I have to water it a couple times a week in addition to the irrigation. Been pouring the miracle grow to it.
