Ok, we were both itching to finish the downslope of the property. Cleaning it up was already a huge process, but we wanted to make it more accessible by putting in new stairs, and flat sections with retaining walls.
Now Shawn has never been much a of a do-it-yourself-er so imagine my shock when he dug out all three of the trenches for the flat parts of the pathway himself. That was a lot of work!
As you can see in the above photo, he did hit a few rocks. They would have to be jackhammered by the landscape crew.
Next, the landscape crew came in to install the retaining walls. First the posts were cemented in.
Then the new stairs were installed. All 117 of them!
My next post will show the befores and afters of the downslope. Stay tuned!
