A little yard work

Laid some landscape border pavers down around ditch/culvert landscaping timbers to make mowing a little easier. If it works, will remove the pavers and form it up and put in concrete. We'll see how it works. Well, truth be known, will probably hire someone to do it. LOL

you just gave me an idea for a convenient place to dump my tanks, no hose needed.

To all who were offended, I was just kidding.

No problem, we have plenty of deer and turkeys dumping all the time.

Nice clean job OC. Good idea to put those reflectors there. Let's the schmuck that goes that far off the road for a yard job or other stupidity know it is gonna cost'em big.

I had reflectors near my driveway and a sink hole. They kept getting run over, mostly by relatives (by marriage).

I extended my culvert. This way I can pull straight in and around to back of the house (I have room in the back yard to turn around)
The pile of rocks is what I dug out. Then moved the mailbox to other side.

Looks good. We had our oldest son's 2 ditches completely eliminated by putting in tubes, back filled, seeded and strawed. It's his "Welcome home and Christmas" present when he gets back in mid Nov.

It's something he's wanted to do every since he bought the house 10 yrs ago. We just had it done. A Masonic friend of ours does this type of work, so we had him do it.
