because i am cheap, i love the dirt, the bags are cheap and the dirt free, because filling a bag with my dirt, placing the bag and creating some thing out of nothing is enjoyable, i cant stop coming up with ideas, here is the latest idea, why build a wall out of cinder block cement bricks, they crack they are expensive, they depleate the natrual resourses ? well any ways that sounded good, and you have to have some one that knows what there doing to build one for you. so i built one out of sand bags!
