Now that spring is here, the snow is melted and warm weather has melted the ice, we have to have the driveway graded and repaved. Right now the pitch of the driveway directs the rainwater toward the house and in the winter time there is ice buildup near the back door. The fact that it is the north side without any sun the ice is melting very slowly. The crew of 6 men were working two days to get the driveway dug up, bring in the gravel, pitch it away from the house and have it paved.
Heavy machinery has arrived
Breaking the old asphalt
Leveling and notice the new wall that was installed late last fall
3 loads of gravel to get the pitch right
It needs to get done - before we can pave the driveway we need to redo the retaining wall. So today the excavator came to Villa Maria and started to pull down the overgrown bushes, brush and couple tree saplings. The wall is coming down.
Almost done - we have to finish this up before the freeze. Winter is Coming!
