We told you about the river rocks that daddy had delivered and although 12 tons sounds like a whole lot, we thought you might like to see what it actually is.
This is the pile of river rocks minus the bit that was used by the courtyard fence below... It sounds like a whole lot more than it actually is...
Those red bricks are going to be used on the tree planter and retaining wall. Momma's not so keen on having to walk on river rocks to get into the courtyard and will probably put a paver walkway right by the gate entrance.
Guess whose pretty little feetsies these are....
Those of you who guessed Mei-Ling are right - BOL. I could easily blow this courtyard but momma says everything will be made "dog safe" once all the work is completed.
Here I am in the courtyard. The workers haven't been back in about one week and with winter approaching they better get back here soon and get the job DONE!
The workers had leveled the courtyard and were in the process of fixing the drainage issues so we would no longer have a lake when it rained in the courtyard. Do you see that orange flag over to the left of the picture? That's were our tree planter is going to be. It will be nice to have a tree in the courtyard.
Here is where we are going to have a concrete sidewalk. Right after the walkway was formed it rained but since our dirt is hard it didn't get destroyed. Momma will be buying some artificial grass and pavers to make a real nice area for Mei-Ling and I to do our business at. Momma's not sure if artificial grass is the best choice for areas that get snow and ice. She is wondering if the ice on the fake grass will hurt our feet.
