The front yard is pretty much done! This morning, they tweaked that rock-lined swale
by adding a pipe to direct the flow from the downspout underground (it empties into the swale where that little pile of rocks is on the left side of the photo above).
They’ve also finished the swale on the other side. It’s a lot longer and will empty into grass (to be planted at the bottom of the hill) and ultimately drain down the big hill (off camera to the right).
So now work has begun in earnest on the back.
They’ve roughed in the stone path and started bringing in plants. We won’t have any grass back there, just plants and flowers (mostly plants).
I was pretty skeptical that this was a two-week project, but I think I’m starting to believe it!
