We made a mess

We tore up the yard. Like most of our projects, it didn't go smoothly. The fence that we thought would take 20 minutes to tear out took closer to 2 hours due to the fact it was industrial tornado proof installed. The thing was 3 feet above ground but five feet under, complete with interior and exterior cement and a nice line of rebar through it. If they would've put half the effort into the house that they did into the vinyl fence, we wouldn't be doing all this remodeling!

The Most Evil Fence in the World

 The fun begins:
Remember that fence? This is what it was like below ground!

Looking for the bottom of those fence posts.

Nope, still haven't found the bottom

Random circle found in the driveway, has a date of 10/30/22 on it

Another truckload for the dump

My contribution, one corner by the house devegged and cleared

A random tomato plant. It's doing great!

This pile was our driveway

Hello Patio Underbelly

Had 10 tons of gravel delivered...It wasn't enough...

Spreading the gravel

clearing the patio by the house

That used to be concrete and a lot of plants

Oh hi, Patio.

 Kevin dug down and tarred and sealed the side of the house, he also repainted the window wells.

RUBBLE! Working on figuring out a way to get rid of this mess.

So, we've had a huge waterfall inducing leak in our back porch, we may have found a source, the big giant hole under the patio.

The white thing is the tank we're turning into a drywell. We were unable to get to that step this time.
