It was at the start of the September (2016) - we were finishing wall replacement works and already had installed first bearing beams, there were still some things left on home remodeling works, but all the major tasks were done, and everything was done to preserve house for the winter (as we will be absent)

It was good day to spend some hours in garden and continue shaping our rock garden, please see:

  1. Building a Rock Garden
  2. Shaping Rock Garden
  3. First plants for Rock Garden

Gravel and soil from pond is used to form trail and on the sidewals soil for the plants.

Would you believe, if I told you, there was actually a dump bellow the rock garden just a few months earlier? See: The Big Spring Territory Cleanup

Now, the home remodeling is a large investment, though the improvement of the surrounding territory doesn't ask so much investment but gives a really high added value.
