Some of you may be wondering why I haven't been posting as often lately so, I thought I would explain with this post.
This is the same property that I wrote about on my Pole Gate Entrance post. This was how the entrance looked when we first bought the property. Neglected and unkempt was the only way to describe it.
Re-grading the contours of the land took countless hours of equipment time.
Moving thousands of yards of fill from one section of the property to another and determining the new grades is a skill my husband has gained from years of experience running his excavation business.
My husband and I spend our days diligently working the land and progress is being made each and every day.
The equipment is parked after a long day of work.
Finish grading is completed and screened loam is being spread.
Saving a tree whenever possible gives the once stark panorama some visual interest.
Our work was done in sections. In this photo, some of the areas are seeded and hayed and other areas are being spread with loam.
Reaping the benefits of our hard work - seeing the once brown oasis now covered in a sea of green.
