What I did on my summer vacation...or rather Memorial day weekend. I helped my sister turn that pile of limestone into part of a flower bed. I say part because we all had to quit when our backs were done in.
Exhibit A: The limestone. Did I mention she got it for free? Neat huh?
Exhibit B: existing flower box/planter with rotting timbers. They were practically mulch when we removed them. Mulch with nails and rusty spikes.
And another side:
And the front side:
Exhibit C: After the timbers were out, we (mostly sis) dug a trench for the new stones.
Exhibit D: The first layer! Woo Hoo!
We got all the way around. Did I mention that each stone weighed 40-70 pounds and took two of us to move? Not a single one wobbles.
And that was the end of that.
