|chilton limestone steps and walls- eventually on top it'll be a patio|
This spring's big project is a case in point. We have had an ugly area of our backyard just off of the back of our house since we bought the place 5 and a half years ago. It was a sort of half-ass attempt at a patio in an area way too small for anything resembling a patio. There was a level area for 7 or 8 feet, then a steep slope with a drop of about 2 feet down to the yard. Someone had tried to make a sitting area out of it by placing irregular yellow limesone flagging on top of the same nice rich black soil that we grow our garden crops in.
