    Yes, yes they do. The reason for the black expanding coupler is to give the HO an opportunity to pull the connection out easier to clean out the pop-up if they need to. Basically it looks like cheesy black tile pipe, but it isn't.

    I really need to find a supplier though that has the white expanding couplers and that should look better if I do more in the future.

    Back to the wall job. I took last week away from it to do a few shrub jobs and to do my booth at Danvers Days last weekend.

    It's going smooth now. Should have it done on Thursday. Right now I'm trying to get the back finished and then move to the front.

    Thanks Guys.

    The wall of course is the biggest expense of the project so the walkway is just a simple stepper path.

    Looks like the plants will probably be put in next spring also. It's getting a little late in the season to put in the perennials that I want to put in.

    Hopefully it will be done this weekend. I had about 350 square feet of bed to do yesterday around the backside of the pool, so I didn't get the back completely finished. All I need to do back there is lay some more flag and throw down more rock. Looks like 6-7 tons of rock when done. Some of the rock is being re-cycled from the old bed on the side of the house. Some dirt in it, but I'm hiding the bad rock under the deck. I'll shoot pics today.

    Thanks for following and I'm glad you like my work. I've had some neat jobs, but nothing that I would call awesome. Well, maybe the farmhouse and the sidewalk there I did last fall.

    It just comes down to budgets, and what the HO wants. Someday I'd like a project that didn't necessarily have a budget and I can have free-reign to do what I want.

    Money is the only limit to the imagination....
