So approx 3 weeks ago I helped out a close friend of mine cut down a dead tree, tear his old yard, put in an entire sprinkler system (with smart controller of course) and laid down 3,500 sq feet of Kentucky bluegrass. This was a TON of work but luckily we had a lot of helping hands and ice cold beer (after the sharp tools were put away of course). His yard new turned out AMAZING and I now have lawn envy. Anyways we had a few areas that needed to get cleaned up/finished off to give it a finished look. So we cut up some railroad ties that were salvaged from an old job and cut them to size. This will hold the grass slope up and keep the gravel in place. We plan on running some lag bolts down using our impact wrench, but these stakes will work for now. All in all it turned out fantastic! Tools used: Ryobi 16" Chainsaw Ryobi drill & driver, Ryobi 10" sliding duel bevel miter saw Ryobi reciprocating saw Ryobi leaf blower (for clean up) Ryobi Dual Function Inflator (skid steer tire had a leak) Ryobi oscillating tool 2 Skid Steers (not Ryobi, but they should make one) two 14' dump trailers (5 trips each to the dump) Shovels, rakes and pickaxes Many many labor hours Cold beer Up Next: We plan on finishing off his garden area using some reclaimed galvanized steel that will look incredible once its weathered and possibly a pergola area with retractable shade.
