Not long after the door guys finished up and left, Joel came by in his dump truck with the topsoil we’d ordered last time he was here. We’d called a few days ago and asked when it was likely to be dry enough to deliver, but hadn’t heard back. Clearly “today” was the answer!
We now have a lovely pile of dirt in front of the house, which is going to have to be broken down by yours truly (it’s good soil, just a bit lumpy) and spread out over all the rocky areas we want grass to grow over. Yet another ‘heavy lifting’ job to add to the list! 18 months ago I wouldn’t have believed you if you’d told me I’d be paying good money for someone to dump a big pile of dirt in front of my house! 🙂
