As we dig, we are finding a large number of bamboo roots, and are pulling those out.
As is normal for our back yard, we dig down a foot or two and we hit solid rock.
We have to be careful as we dig -- the French drain runs next to this in the lawn.
Once we have about half of this section dug up, we can frame it for concrete.
And then pour the concrete.
Move the forms down.
And pour the second part of this first section.
Then the third part.
Rain and cold weather slowed down this work, but after pouring this third part of the fence wall, we continued digging.
and continued. Rain and cold weather slowed us down, but we have it completely dug out.
We can then pour the last section of the concrete wall.
giving us a continuous wall of concrete down to bedrock along this entire section of fence.
Now we put the white limestone blocks on the top of the cement wall, to give it a finished look.
And then we can put the dirt back in the ditch.
This entire process -- from starting the digging, pouring the concrete, putting the stones on top, and filling in the digging -- took about two months.
