My Summer Project – Stone Wall

If you’ve ever been to our house, as you drive down our driveway, up to our house, you’ll see a nice line of large rocks on the right, with small trees in between them. On the left, you see a pile of dirt and rocks, covered in weeds.

I (Ashton) got this crazy idea in my mind that I can create a awesome terraced planter there! So, as crazy ideas usually begin, I got right to work. =]

Whoever built our house evidently ran into a bunch of large rocks as they are distributed around the property, including on top of this ugly hill. I brought it upon myself to bring these rocks down, and line them up in a nice straight line. Mind you these rocks are 300-600 lbs each…

Here’s the first shot I took of the area. You can see the random large rocks around the top of this hill: (I have already moved two big rocks into place.)
The Project Begins

And then I moved a bunch of them down.
Rocks Move

Buddy helped me move the last one (on the right), which was at least 500lbs.
More rocks come down the hill

Here’s a close up of the progression that I went through in ~4 hours:
