Give a Guy a Tractor part 2

Yes, evidently there is a part two.
If you remember,
this all started by deciding to scrape the good
top soil out before putting gravel under the lean-to.
You can see that on Part 1 here.
I've decided this is the ultimate
snowball project.

This is our lawn.
I am now hearing the phrases
"smooth as a golf course,"
"won't spill your coffee,"
in reference to the lawn.

I figured out when a guy gets a tractor,
the neighbor guys want to bring their tractors
over to play in the yard as well.
"We might as well get those stumps out
while it's torn up."
"It would sure be nice to clean up 
the side along the river."
"Do you want this tree here?"
"Oh my."
We had 3 in our yard at one time.

We are now down to two, and this is
the current state of the yard.
I do have to say I am eternally grateful to the neighbors.
The only hard part is the timing & funding.
We still need to get firewood in and
(now's the funny part)
get gravel for under the lean-to. 

Until next time,

  1. Awwwwww.......NOOOOO!!!!!
    I can completely relate......
    remember the basement room redo.....??????well....I can't post the final post yet...why?????? WATER HAS COME IN AGAIN.....TWICE.......I just cried the second time...I was afraid we will never figure out the problem....(We did realize that the new gutter drain maybe have a LARGE part in the flooding....it empties near the window well...) So....hopefully tomorrow, before the storm that is predicted next week hits, we will have some earth moved....AND gravel put in the hole!....I know....too much to hope for....**shaking head**...I know who will be assigned the post at the window....
    hugs to you, and prayers for the both of us!

  2. boys and their toys, they are never happier than when playing at things like this. Your place is going to be lovely when finished

  3. Oh, how funny...
    I can just see and hear the tractors now.
    The "finished" yard looks smooth !
