Well, more of landscaping. We have a problem here in spring with our septic tank. Everything gets so wet that the septic tank starts to leak in to the basement. And then the house don't smell so good. Last year I put down some plastic to help keep the snow and water away from the house. It worked for a while, until it was all shredded by the dog and wind. Then the basement started to leak again. So I decided this year I'm going to do it right. Last week I picked up the right plastic and some stakes. I laid it all out, staked it down, and got about 1200 pounds of cobble stones to border it. I planned to get gravel this weekend. Who knew the worst wind storm in 12 years would come threw and last for 2 days. We had winds nearing 80 MPH. And being in the country we had little to brake the wind. My work didn't hold up real good.
I was able to get just over a ton of gravel in each load. 3 loads total so far, I'm a little short, so another load next week.
I put it all back best I could.
Got the first load down.
Here it is after 3 loads. I ran just short on the lower left hand side, and the area up by the house.
here'* the approach to the house.
Another view. I plan to add some large flat flag stones to make some level areas. On there I have a pagoda fountain and I want to get some other things, like a statue, bird bath, and perhaps a large banzai tree that'* in a pot. I don't want anything growing threw the plastic. And I really want to get a large moat dragon, that would rock.
Things are really starting to come around. Next year I need to reseal the parking lot.
