Case in point, here you see the beginnings of a beautiful rock retaining wall. We had been meaning to reclaim more of our back yard from the imposing hill next to the house (our little utility shed was starting to get buried), so we got to work.
And what do you know? We even accomplished a little father/daughter bonding time in the process. Two birds, one stone.
By the way, if anyone in the area is looking for rental equipment, I know a really great sales guy: firstname.lastname@example.org (e-mail) ;)
