A Couple of Stumps
May 10, 2010
A couple of weeks ago we did a massive ripout which is rather on par for this property. We have definitely been doing more ripping out than planting since the property was so over planted and poor planted with inappropriate plants. This time we got smart and hired out the work. The guys came in with a small backhoe. Within 2 hours the two gardens being ripped out were no more. All the stumps were gone! Had we done this by hand it would have taken us several days. We were left with a blank slate to replant as we want. As soon as it dries enough they will delivering 8 cubic metres of top soil so things will really start happening then! It's funny because I was concerned over the local predictions that we were going to have a dry spring but it hasn't turned out that way. I'm anxious to get the new beds going along with landscaping.
