The casual observer might be fooled into thinking that this is a photo of our town's dump. In fact, it is our front yard, which is undergoing a transformation into a courtyard.
The work on the perimeter wall was scheduled to start Monday, so I was busy all weekend relocating and renovating our irrigation system.
My latest discovery was that a water line in the front yard that served a hose bib on the side of the house, was only 6 inches deep in places. That put it squarely in conflict with the brick work, so it had to be replaced at an appropriate depth.
These rocks are the reason that the original line was installed incorrectly. Digging in the Arizona soil is no fun. I hand dug about 40 feet to a depth of 18 inches to reinstall the line correctly.
Bright and early yesterday morning, the masonry guys started in earnest. This is them digging the footer for the wall.
