Time to start on the yard!



Rock wall (and crawling area)





Wife wanted a veggie garden area.




Also been wanting to build a lipo charging box for awhile. I think it turned out pretty good!

Thanks man! I've just about got my shop all set up and I'm still working on the yard. I'll be pouring some concrete next week and doing a nice bluestone patio. Lots to do......

Yeppers, You can definitely appreciate all the hard work even more when you see it in person.

Now do something about the Bermuda triangle of a driveway you have

I've been working on the yard.

Decided to remove most of the backyard and start over.....mostly because I have an excavator and I can
Also removed the pavers from around the patio. Going to make it bigger and veneer it with Pennsylvania bluestone.





Just about ready for concrete.





4 yards and an hour later.





The patio will be about 21' x 14' when done.

Bluestone and sprinkler system for the yard should be next.

Been working on the yard quite a bit.

Front lawn was seeded about a month ago, first mowing!



Finally did my front walkway. Pennsylvania bluestone. Poured a 3" concrete slab first, and laid them out to get the pattern right.



Not bad for my first time laying bluestone.



Decided to completely remove my backyard, including a large patch of bamboo I planted 12 years ago.



A friend of mine said she wanted the bamboo so I cut it up into 12" clumps and hauled it away.



I wanted to save a bit of it because I really love bamboo. Decided to plant some clumps in pieces of steel pipe. Remembered I had an old air tank from a locomotive we scrapped.



Cutting it into 24" long pieces.



Ground the torch cuts and a couple coats of clear, a 24" deep hole and some bamboo.....looks pretty cool.





A couple over on the side of the house too.
