W e tackled the bluestone path this weekend and it was no small task. Fortunately my husband as access to some big equipment through his job, and boy did it come in handy. We pulled out all the bluestone, and the larger pieces were definitely two-person jobs. The Kubota came in handy to move them to the truck. Then we tackled the giant limestone pieces that made up the stairs. My parents wanted to keep them to try to make a fire pit out of them, and, as you can see, without the big machinery they wouldn't have budged.
To refresh your memory, here's the path we dismantled:
The Kubota has come in handy for a lot of projects, including filling up the vegetable garden with soil and even stirring the compost pile (which is how we destroyed the compost bin, but oh well). So not only is big machinery handy, it's a lot of fun too!
