The side lawn of the house has always had a severe slope to it, too much to make it very useable.
We took a couple of years collecting up stones from farms around Franklin County until we had enough of them
to build up a wall sizeable enough to hold enough fill to flatten it out.
You can see the grade of the slope by looking at the string
We stored stones here for years before we had enough
The first load of fill arrives
Hopefully the wall does its job
The wall's up and the topsoil is leveled
Putting in the shrubs. Eamon's a big help.
