Over the last several weeks, our land has been changing a lot.
After the loggers finished, the field was still very rocky and filled with roots. We had a grading company come out and rake the field to make it smooth, flat and free of debris.
We also had them clean up and shape the pond, which the loggers left covered in debris and only roughly the right shape.
They also removed the giant stumps and raised the grade of the front-yard over a foot to help the water drain away from the house.
Finally they used the rocks pulled from the field to build retaining walls around the side yard of the house and the studio pad to prevent erosion.
The field is now very smooth, ready to be planted with grass and worked with a small tractor. There are also now pads for a barn and two poultry houses.
