Another Master Gardener "Team Work" Day

Have I ever told you how much we love our Master Gardeners?  They truly are the best people in this world!  When I start to think about all the work they have done at the gardens this year, I get tired.  Just looking at the pictures I took at our last Master Gardener Day my muscles start to ache when I remember all the work we did that day.  It was awesome what an army of Master Gardeners armed with shovels, rakes, and wheelbarrows can do to 17 yards of road base and 13 1/2 yards of decorative rock.  Here are some pictures to show you how awesome this team really is... 
Piles of rock in the parking lot that were all shoveled by hand and carted over by hand.

We decided to dig up the existing bark path and put in a new rock pathway lined with leftover dry stack rock. 

The existing path had to be dug down 3-4" as well.
Each stone had to carefully measured and placed.
It was a great team effort.

On top of the road base we put 4-5 inches of Chat Fire rock.

The road base was then compacted onto the pathway.

Almost done placing each of the rocks.

The decorative rock was then put on top of the road base.

More compaction time.

Didn't it turn out great?

The pathway is so nice we don't want to step on it.
 Thank you Master Gardeners.  We couldn't have accomplished such a feat without your help.  Thanks for staying until almost 6pm to help us get it all done.  We think you're the best team ever assembled and we love the opportunity we get to rub shoulders with each of you!
