Photo a Day Challenge

Side Yard 2 – March 12, 2013


Taken from the opposite angle of the first Side Yard photo. You can see the “pots” with their succulants planted. The “footer” and the first row of bricks are in place. You can tell the grass has been killed, and you can also see piles of bricks waiting to be laid. Black snakes of drip line are waiting to be burried once the planters are completed. The clay bricks for the curves, and the circle planter laid out in the middle of the yard have been cut with about a nine degree angle on both ends, to form a tighter circle, or curve. I cut approx 80 bricks, at both ends. Skill saw with a diamond blade. To keep the “clay dust” down the bricks were soaked in water for 45 minutes to an hour first. I will post a picture of me cutting one soon. The yard is full of clay mud/dust. My beautiful wife is glad that most of the cuts are done, as the saw is very loud, and the dust is being tracked into the house. NOT by me, its the cats….. 🙂 Canon 30D, ISO-100, 17mm, F8, 1/40 sec.
