A Little Landscaping

This past Saturday, my husband and our youngest son worked to spread a couple loads of sand and gravel over a drainage ditch (now with a drainage pipe underneath) at the end of our driveway. The ditch had become unsightly with blackberry brambles constantly growing up, and volunteer bushes and trees doing their bit to return the driveway to its original status as part of the forest.



Seth is doing his bit to help Daddy spread the sand/gravel.


Rick took down some low-hanging branches at the end of the driveway at the same time.


Here is as finished as it got on Saturday. The next step is to spread topsoil over this, and plant some grass. This is a big improvement I think. It looks cleaner, and we have better visibility at the end of the driveway. Nice work guys!

    Cassie, Thank You. We are so thankful to have our beautiful home on this property. Rick built the house almost twenty years ago. It has been an ideal location for the children to play, work, and grow up.

    Kerri, don’t be jealous, just come and visit! We’ll have a barbeque, invite over friends, and you all will have a good time. 🙂

    Laura and Sarah, didn’t you kids have a wonderful time using that ditch as a fort and hiding place when you were little? Lately, it had become so overgrown, and Daddy wanted there to be better visibility of the road, so Goodbye, ditch!
