Excavating the West Lawn Bottom Zone, Part 2

For the past month plus, we have been continuing to dig out the Bottom of the West Lawn while extending the Retention Wall and filling in behind it with the dirt excavated out of the Bottom.

We continued with the digging.  Both next to the Jungle,

and next to where the Retaining Wall needs to be extended.

Until, at one point, I hit a main irrigation line taking water to the control valves for Zones 6 and 7, which have pretty much been taken apart.

and once the valves have been found, we exposed the entire water supply line, and removed it, keeping the valves so they can be reused.

Continued digging exposed more and more rocks, big and small.

Some of these rocks were used to extend the Retention Wall.
