I spent the day laying washed river rock down on my patio. The top picture is before and the bottom picture is after. I started this morning around 9:30 and finished around 5:30 this evening. I shoveled around a ton and a half, shovel by shovel full. But I got it done, and it looks great! I still have to decorate, by putting some big rocks and garden statues and so forth down. We still have to fill in the gazebo area with blue stone yet. I will be going to get some of that next week and hopefully when the hubby is home we can get it done. I will be a hurting unit tomorrow, but it was worth it.
