Surveying the Land

Now comes the fun part.. lol..Checking out the soil , the leveling of the ground and removing all the rocks that lay dormant under ground (they actually came in handy later on as you will see here) The soil was rich in nutrients, I think at one stage, this area where I live, was once a market garden so there was very little or no clay in the soil.
I pegged and used string for all the ground work that would take place in my backyard. It took some time and effort but I was happy with the outcome. As I stood in the dirt, hoping I wouldn't trample any of it inside the new house, I pondered my next move...
