    From someone who has lugged some rock - my garden hat is off to you! That was a huge job, looks great and will only get better as it fills in, Jeanette !

    Thank you. Yes it was very hard work had to bring them to my home a little at a time in my car. Then carry them to the area. The finished result was worth the effort.
