Keeping Rosie Happy!

Got a project that you are working on that is not a tractor? Maybe a barn to hold your tractors or just fun stuff like woodworking, glass, tools, sheds, gardens, custom implements, etc., this is the place to talk about it.

Keeping Rosie Happy!

Postby Barnyard » Sun Apr 29, 2012 8:08 pm

Rosanne has been after me to do something with her weed flower bed around the flag pole for quite a while. Yesterday while looking through craigslist I found an ad for landscape retaining wall blocks. The guy had 150 used ones for $50.00. That's not bad since new ones are about $1.80 each. Naturally being the cheap guy I am I have to give the guy a call. He said to come and get them. They were still lining his patio and we had to take them around to the front but that was no big deal. I ended up with almost 200 of those suckers (about 25 cents a piece) and Rosie finally got her border.

It looks like it is uneven but when I ran a level across it there were no dips in it. There is a low spot in the yard there so I figured it is an optical illusion.

Looks good, Bill. If you lived closer, I'd give you a bucket of bulbs! (buttercup & iris and maybe some daylilies)

Nice job, had it been me however, they would be forming a nice solid flat area around the pole covering up the weeds. :lol:

All those Cubs and all the implements that go with them...... and you're using a shovel!?!?!? :?
I guess that proves that you need another Cub, with the implement for putting rocks around the flagpole.

Eight years working in excavating taught me everything I want to know about shovels from digging out ditches (especially the one that caved in on a co-worker! He lived.) to cleaning the dozer tracks with a duckbill. Oh boy, those were the days! :lol:

If I had to do it over, there would be grass all around that pole that I could mow.

Dan, you'd have to give them to Rosie. I'm not much of a flower child. :lol:

Did Mott or Woods or maybe even Prewitt make a rock placement implement. :) If I had this in my driveway I would have saved some work!
