Yard Farmers 2013 pics-Buildings, concrete, lawn, flagstone, firepits.

I decided to dump a few pictures for your enjoyment/criticism. Some of these are actually from late 2012 that I hadn't had time to upload. It's been crazy busy around here, last summer I got hit on a tractor while mowing, a crack head ran out of the road going 90 and hit my tractor at 65. Sooo, that threw a kink in things.

I have recently started doing lots more government work, I've built two matching bath houses, armour plated 2,000 ft of shoreline, currently replacing some concrete drainage ditches, and about to start expanding utilities in a CORPS campground.

2012 was rough with the accident, but I also achieved two goals in 2012...My first 6 figure job, and then I set a goal to get a contract over 250k, and did that last fall with the bath houses.

Hope you enjoy the pics!



























on this one, we were digging a grave and hit rock, so we had to bring in a hoe ram lol


























this is the concrete ditches before


house we start landscaping and grading next week.

Beautifiul work! I love that walkway. And sweet machines! Looks like you've come a long way pretty quickly (I'm 23 also). How old were you going into business?

Thanks guys! The 27D was awesome, but a little light with a 24" bucket on uneven ground, or with a hoe ram. I had it a year. Bought it new since I could get government rates. Put 300 hrs on it, sold it when I stopped digging graves. I'd get a 50d with a thumb if I had it to do again. Zero problems though. I just spent a week on a new 75D. It was AMAZING.

And I bought a tractor with loader and bush hog when I was 15. I've drove 25 miles on it to Bush hog or spread rock.

Here is a few more, two are views from the top of the dam where I replaced the concrete flumes, once the job is completed. One or two are a current work in progress, one is the crew cab international dump I just traded for. I'm super excited about that old truck, only 75,000 miles, DT466, 35000GVW, its a hoss. Hope you enjoy. It was time to buy a bigger truck again, the poor old 99 F350 did not like hauling the 20,000 pound Deere 75D excavator almost 200 miles. She's ready for a set of injectors, the stock ones have 250k on them lol.
