OK, these pictures are a little boring, but some of my family and friends wanted to see them.
We get a lot of water in the basement, which apparently is common in Maine. We are, after all, only about 300 ft above sea level. The ground here tends to be very sandy. Luckily, our is pretty good soil.
I wanted to just have some grading done so that the water drained away from the house. I also wanted to do some planting, and the bamboo was too deep, so that needed to be dug out too.
Well, you know how the story goes... a little bit of grading turned into a lot of tearing out old trees and bushes, and laying pipe around the foundation that will be connected to the gutter.
Now if Icould only keep the chickens out of the new grass seed!
