Minor Project Gone Major

Chad has to park on the left side of our driveway, outside of the garage, so my car can be in the garage. :-)  He has complained for years about how muddy his shoes get when he gets in and out of his car and has to walk through the yard there.  Well we finally decided to do something about it a couple weeks ago.  We bought some retaining wall blocks, pavers, and rock to extend our "sidewalk" down that side of the driveway past his car.  It turned out really nice.

So nice, in fact, we decided to do the replace the shale stones that outlined our existing "sidewalk" with the retaining wall blocks.

So then, we decided to replace the shale stone throughout our flower gardens with the retaining wall blocks.  We had to order 125 of them, and thank goodness Lowe's delivered them.

When they showed up we were thinking, "Those aren't all ours, are they?"  No, they weren't, just one pallet.

That's still a lot of pavers that need to be placed!  I can't wait to see the end result.  I'll be sure to post it.

  1. That turned out really nice! Just make sure the snow blower doesn't get those stones caught in them. :-D
