...but the first part of the pathway is taking shape.
I went and got more retaining blocks today, and I'm pulling apart some of the previous work to use the New Method for making the path (which is, by the way, going much better than the Old Method).
You can see I'm sort of working from the center outward: when I'm done there will be a gently sloped pathway from the front of the house around the Asian pears and back up to the back of the house. Water should, in theory, flow nicely down that pathway in the winter, and fill up the basin (which will be where the huge pile of dirt is right now, only, like, lower and all), then percolate into the ground.
That's the theory.
