Here is what I will be starting next week. This is my first time doing something like this and I'm really looking forward to it. Some of you guys may laugh at how long it takes me but that's ok. I am going to take my time and be sure it is done right. I don't know why I never posted this here sooner. I have friends/colleagues who are experts to lean on for advice when I need it but I'm sure you guys will have lots of great tips for me too. So here it is. My machine is sitting at the bottom of the slope (were it gets steep) and the rock will be dropped in front of it. First thing I will do is build the wall along side it up to the same level as the neighbors and make nice trail up between the two yards.
