Trenching the Yard

[8.2011: Kylie doing a balancing act]

The backyard landscaping is moving along slowly but it’s starting to take shape.  I could almost see what it’ll end up looking like.  Husband and my father-in-law (FIL) trenched the yard a couple of weeks ago for the sprinkler system.  Man, that was serious labor.

This machine looks very innocent but it’s extremely heavy and difficult to push.  Husband said that bringing this machine (a rental from Lowe’s) down the hill to our backyard wasn’t so bad but pushing it up the hill was dreadful.  I’m just glad this is a one time thing.  Imagine having to do this as a job!

As I type, husband and FIL are laying down tarp and rocks.  I should have photos coming soon.

Btw, we planted our first tree in the backyard: a ponderosa pine.
