Ripping out the old tree roots that were under the old deck
That's a major root!
Prepping rear patio area for new drainage
More hacking away at the tree roots
This will be the new back steps
The roots led to this monster stump! More hacking.
Concrete hose winds around the side of the house
Forms in place for sidewalk to new shed location (if we can get it back there)
Ready to pour!
The concrete comes out like nasty toothpaste.
The new patio is taking shape.
Contents of the shed before unloading it all for moving...
Making that pavement smooth
Now adding a bit of salt...
South side of the house.
The old deck was level with that sliding door.
Salt on the pavement to create a texture of little holes.
Say goodbye to the concrete that used to be the dog run...
Closeups of the salt. It's there to create the texture, but it also leaves white residue that takes a long time to wash away!
