This is part one of a series that Roger is going to help me write about our retaining wall renovation project. These are the before photos. As you can see, the previous wall (which is who-knows how old...) is literally disintegrating before our eyes.
Starting tomorrow, our driveway will become a flurry of activity involving some sort of excavating device, 13 pallets of 80 pound-a-piece stones, sand, gravel, a huge dumpster, etc. Take your last look at the old, dilapidated thing, for it's days are seriously numbered. (I'd like to mention that what you see is exactly what was there when we bought this house almost eight years ago. It'was an awful gray monster then, too.)
On with the show!
