New Patio Project With Sweetstone (Pt.2)

The removal of the old slab went by very fast, and this meant we could move on to the fun part.

Everywhere we set the boulders, we also compacted the soil before adding gravel and then compacted that.  
The Jumping jack seemed to work pretty good for that.

...and now the fun part!

Look who stopped by to visit!  My neighbor Venessa.

For future access we added a sleeve.  I'll be able to run lighting wire and a irrigation line through this later.

Since The whole patio will now be raised about 4 inches. Instead of having a step anywhere, we busted out this portion of the sidewalk and it will now have a slight incline.

...and here you can see how the boulders will set into the patio

Thanks for following along
