Last Saturday, May 4th, work on the front walk began! First my son Rundy marked out the edges of the walk with string and stakes.When he fills up the bed of the truck, he will fill up the trailer parked behind it. He uses the mattock to loosen the soil as needed and to pry out the larger rocks. The goal is to remove eight inches of soil throughout. That’s not precisely true. The soil has been used to fill in low places in the lawn. The larger rocks that you see along the edge in the grass have been collected and dumped on the rock pile. However, no more digging has been done. And while looking over these pictures, I am surprised at how much more leafed out the trees are that are in the background. Spring has sprung!
