Landscaping: Week 6
Mar 27-31, 2000
The irrigation will most likely be finished this week. The fence is beginning to go back together, too.
More trenches are being filled in than dug. I think this is a good sign!
The hose bibs on the back of the pool house have been re-attached to the water supply. More drainage/irrigation ditches are being filled in as the final few sprinkler heads are planted. There are still some drip lines to go in. The orange line on the hillside above the retaining wall is the approximate location of a future two foot rock wall that will be used to terrace the hillside.
Irrigation to the plant area between the driveways is in. A copper feed pipe was laid between the junction of two driveway slabs. At the same time the terracing of the hillside above the retaining wall started. A load of sand and concrete was delivered, I suspect they will be used to build the seat walls. I’ve been told that there are 78 tons of stone scheduled for delivery once that phase of the project begins.
The rototiller was in use much of the day, chopping the large clumps into smaller clumps, ready to mix with some good soil. Posts for the expanded pool enclosure have been set, marking one end of the stone border between pool deck and upper garden/patio area. The stone terracing above the retaining wall is done. Work has started on the first of 3 seat walls.
