Above is what the area looks like today. I pretty much mapped it out (with my wife's help) with a shovel and a tape measure. This morning I finished the edges and turned alot of the sod near the garage, the area that will have the least dirt added above it. All in small bits and at an easy pace to avoid the usual back issues. As a happy coincidence, the timber edging the garage aroud the corner is a perfect length- no cutting or removing it! I may break up more sod if it seems necessary later, but I want to have the wooden box out there to see what it looks like.
That was last night and this morning, this afternoon I started building the boxes. More on that to come...
