    the existing driveway stopped in the front of the house but the builder wanted to wrap it around and have the parking area in the back

    you can see it required a lot of cutting and filling to get the thing level...the bank use to come from on the left down to the grass on the right in a nice slope, so i had to just hoe it out and carry it all to another side of the property

    last one...job took 2 days and that was mainly because the stone trucks for the top coat couldnt get there until the next day..about 4 hours to cut it with the hoe, 2 hours to move all the dirt, then about 6 hours to get the stone trucks there and spread

    the property was beautiful..the house set on 2 acres that was adjacent to 27 acres right next to the old King Ranch in coatesville...the builder was trying to sell it with all 29 acres, i dont know if he was successful or not

    Nice looking pics Dirt Digger2. When you say old King Ranch is this the same one that has thousands and thousands of acres? If so I have seen some pretty interesting harvesting pics on that farm. I did not realize it was in PA though. For some reason that does not sound like the correct state. Since you say old did they move?
