McGrew backyard natural water diversion near completion

Follow-up on prior McGrew Creek post. Here is the rest of the project...which we finally completed today. The natural swale now has a border and the Diane's stepping stone path has been revised (thanks to Ryan and Michelle for doing the foundational work)

McGrew creek 2011 enhancements

The McGrew creek project continues. This year we have let some pretty natural ground cover grow at the "headwaters" of the creek. Fred and Freddie Frog, guardians of the water way, look more natural with this colored cover.

Pickin up sticks

I hate picking up sticks in my yard as I am 6 feet and my back gets tired. Thanks to Jerry for this great idea. Using this extension grabber and pulling a plastic sled for the sticks I did my entire yard without a hitch. AWESOME.
