Here’s where things stand after the third day of work. Unfortunately, I didn’t get quite enough concrete for the step, and they ran out while filling my form. So we grabbed some more, and I finished it up that night. Although it’s only one step, it provides a nice delineation between the area adjacent to the patio and the rest of the yard.
Now we can clearly see the outline of the path, and we’re pretty excited about how it looks so far. Only 10 yards of gravel to go, and it’ll be done. We are so glad not to be moving it all the way up into our yard ourselves!
