Ten Tons o' Gravel

>> Wednesday, November 28, 2007

This morning we received ten tons of gravel. Seriously - ten tons. Want to know what ten tons of gravel looks like?You might think I just threw Jo in there for scale - but she was actually my happy helper today. She helped scoop up gravel (I used a shovel and wheelbarrow, she used a bucket) and spread it out behind the house. We're going to do this all the way around the house to keep the rain from splashing clay mud up on to the soon-to-be-installed siding. I'd rather use mulch but it's not a good idea to mulch right up next to the foundation, so we're using gravel instead. It will look a lot less stark when we get some plantings in. Hydrangeas are at the top of my wish list, but that won't happen until next spring. For now we're one step closer to putting up siding. . .

Well why do you want ten tons? I eman, it's so much gravel. I built my house using only 3 tons of gravel. The only thing I can think at this momment is you're gonna build a palace or something like that.
