    I've learned that down where Chris is from that nothing is illegal. I can't even move a blade of dirt with out somebody _itchin!!

    I'm impressed you got the sidewalk out and back and it looks that good, I've never seen that done before, I usually push under the sidewalks if possible.

    Yep we get in, get out, no problems. I tied the two downspouts into the drain lines. Also put in one small catch basin.

    I've got a little trick on removing sidewalks are returning them back to place in 95% condition the they way it looked before. as far as cutting the curb? why not, it was in the way, can't be holding up progress:laugh:

    How did you do that with the sidewalk, really? I thought there would be no way to get that concrete out of there without breaking it and then be able to put it back in one piece, there is no way.

    I did use plywood under the machine to keep from tearing the grass up, other than that, I dressed everything up with the machine and packed it flat with the bucket.

    So this trench has been a thorn in my rear, trying to lay the irrigation pipe I have to run it under my other drain lines, then I hit two massive boulders. there was no way to go around them, must go through them.
