The previous owner decided to fence an area behind the garage for his two huge labs to run in. Great idea in theory, until he brought in a backhoe and filled the area with about 6 inches of river rock. The dogs didn’t like it (obviously), and it has been a useless space. Until now. Sort of.
As you can see the Walnut tree and I don’t get along. Those rocks multiply while we sleep. I swear. Sunday I hauled another strip of about 6 inches away. I think it was 8 wheelbarrow-fulls. The neighbor wants them, so I’ve been dumping them in her yard. We got rid of a lot of them through CraigsList, but I got tired of giving out our address to 20+ people who never showed up. Plus, said rocks are full of stupid walnut shells. Grr.
Here is a picture of our new patio set with new umbrella and base. Please ignore the dead grass. And the sad tree the P.O. decided to plant under a telephone wire.
