I found a young guy, maybe 25, who’s dad has an earthworks company, that just ventured out on his own. He’s been on heavy equipment since he was 10. That boy was fast, affordable and could probably move a penny with that equipment. I flagged it, he asked questions etc then off he went. 1 day to dig the pond and 1.5 days for the terraces.
I am use to VA compacted clay, so digging the little stuff was a breeze in the soil. Shovel, hoe and a good rake was all that I needed and happily traveled here with those.
Thanks for checking this out. When we realized we would “shelter” here, my first thought was - my seeds are in VA!!! Seeds, some bare roots (like strawberries) and some whips were the first thing I got. Toilet Paper never hit my gotta have list- hahaha! Stay safe~
