Of course no one has any money at the end of the job…so the landscapers kind of have to make do. My guys (Sierrascape Landscaping) did nice work over 2 – 1/2 days in early November. They built three nice retaining walls, created a rock-lined drainage ditch around the property, installed a 5-foot wide border of river stone on the ground under the roof line, spread top soil over the site, and seeded it with “cabin mix,” a high-altitude meadow grass. We’re hoping that come spring, this seed will germinate and return the landscape back to nature, approximately.

Retaining walls.

Greg putting a stone on the top of the retaining wall. All of the stone came from the site. One thing we have a lot of is rocks.

You can see the 5-ft band of river stone along the back wall. This prevents splashing of mud from the dripping.
