Garden Renovation: Day 1, Dirt Work

We have activity in the garden, finally! It seemed for most of the winter like we weren’t going to make any progress in time for planting, but we finally have gotten started. Always call before you dig!

The first thing to do was to get the extra soil from the raised beds removed.

Then all the extra dirt had to be removed down to the level where the drainage needs to be put in. They made a big pile in the middle to haul away. I wonder how long that will take?

Not very long, apparently. Only a couple of hours. It’s amazing what a skidsteer can do.

The end of Day 1! A clean slate, all ready for the drainage work to begin.
