Re: 7 years of hard work - finished! :)
The photos can't begin to explain the hard work behind the final product. It's absolutely beautiful. It's easy to see that NOTHING was placed haphazardly. The placement of every boulder, tree, shrub and pebble was envisioned long before the photos were taken.
I'm not ambitious enough to do your maintenance work, though I could take a crack at maintaining your wood pile! I've got 10 acres at my cottage in northern lower Michigan - it comes in two flavors: mowed field or forest.
Good work Andy. Enjoy the fruits of your labor. I'd advise you to relax, but somehow don't think that's possible... ;-)
