Save the Laurels, Cut In the Driveway
Except for last week’s felling of the giant old, dead, double-trunk oak trees, this was the first day of real activity. In preparation for tomorrow’s transplanting of some sizable laurels, rhododendren, hemlock saplings, and even some galax plants by In-Site Out Design landscaping crew, an entry into the lot had to be established.
HomeSource’s grading crew, headed by Chuck, brought their big Deere track hoe in to knock down a few trees in the path, yank out the big old double trunk stump, and carve an entrance into the lot from the street. Trackhoe operater Flip did a masterful job of minimizing collateral damage, cleaning up the lot, and sculpting the initial entrance.
