12.5 Tons of Rocks

Makes for a Dry Creek Bed...
and a sore back. ;-)

And this is how it went down:

Large rocks were brought in for the outside edges of the creek.
 
Placed by hand...one by one.
The medium were placed next to the large.
A load of small rocks to fill in the middle.
(Fortunately these where wheelbarrowed in.)

Here are some before and after photos of the process:

Trout!
There are three, but only one is pictured.
It's sort of a "Where's Waldo" photo.

And a few flowers, of course.
It's late in the year to be planting annuals,
but we'll see how it goes for the next couple of months. :-)

We are in hopes that the project will reduce the 3 W's....
Watering, Weeding, and Work!

  5. That is a whole lot of work to help reduce your work. Very pretty though. A beautiful yard addition.

  6. Rockman lives up to his name. Does this make you Rockwoman? :D

    You told us how much the rocks weighed, but not how much weight you lost hefting them around. A few pounds, I'll bet!

    It all looks great.

  8. That's one mighty project you've worked on there!! I can imagine how sore your back must have been by the end of it, but it should work in reducing those 3 W's :)
