Tear it Down

So.... the first day was fun to watch! They ripped out the boulder wall, all of the remaining shrubs, tree stumps, and other debris. 

They started around 11 AM, taking the boulders that made up the old wall, and placing them on the other side of the driveway. That side was pretty steep and I wanted to shore it up as much as possible, so that my driveway stays where it's suppose to stay. That process took about three hours, and after than they ripped everything else out. 

In these two pictures, you can see the boulders that are being moved.

Here's a good before and after, minus the boulders.

The small tree on this end of the drive will have to come down.

I was hoping to keep this tree on this end of the drive, but I'm afraid it will need to go too. It's a beautiful maple, and I hate to lose it.

All of those boulders that made up that wall, ended up here. It was a perfect fit, as all of the boulders got used.  These will really help to reinforce the bank.

The rocks have since been covered with dirt and daffodils will be planted all over the bank.

What we're putting down on the bank.

I managed to get a time lapse video of the first day of demolition, and this is what it looked like.
