Project Courtyard: Lava Rock Removal

image
Therese gave me a birdhouse that she made. Then we worked so hard, we barely talked the rest of the day.

Really. We were on a mission to remove lava rock.

There was no easy way to do it, but combination leaf blowing and shoveling worked best for us.

After three or four hours, we had made ourselves a fine mess. Perfect time for a burger break.

Sometimes things have to get worse before they can get better.

Ol Lady Got (lava) Rocks, that’s me. We are going to repurpose these down the road.

I don’t hate the colors. It’s more of a texture thing.

Dave dug up the woody juniper roots and got started raking out the second bed.

Not a bad day’s work. Much more to come.
