back yard digging

BP3, Mike, Tony, Javaris, and Dan helped me dig out the back yard yesterday.  it was a bit harder than expected.
we found boulders and sunken fence posts in concrete

but we got it done

and here's the proof.
it may not look like a lot, but i would guess we moved close to 6 or 7 cubic yards (which can range from 14,400 to 24,000 pounds of material)


  1. For us ignorant folks...what were you digging for?

  2. to put in a bluestone patio over the entire yard. i have to lay down a gravel base for it.

    1. Got it. No grass then?
      Super easy upkeep! Looks great.

  3. My back hurts just reading this. Good for you!!
