#Thegreatpoolpondconversion - 190818
a lot of work was done. it may not look like much
since it was ‘only’ 95 degrees, we managed two solid hours today.
first we built a short ramp so we could back up onto the deck. That cart full doesnt count in the, er, count.
that was followed by 4 more carts to the far end using the new ramp
the gazebo was in the driveway covering the sand pile
we moved it so that we could work in the pit
a lot like moving goalposts
we managed 4 carts (plus the one we dont count) and 10 wheelbarrow loads
can’t end on an odd number, and once you hit eight, well 10 is oh, so close.
then we got in, attacked the piles, and raked it more or less level.
that’s left side, right side looking towards the old ‘shallow’ end
right now it’s all soft sand. the next step, next week is to pound it down and compact it.
then more sandbags on the inner ‘wall’, and repeat, till we hit the target height.
i promise there will be more exciting pictures soon.
