Removing the 43 Yews blocking the view. Installed garden with view of pond.

 

Removed the 43 Yews, brought in 24 yards of dirt and mulch, put in the stone wall with stone steps and planted garden of perennials and annuals. Gardening on a slope can be challenging but stunning when done!

 

 

After clearing the field of overgrowth a pile of vines and rocks were left behind. I had the stone wall built along with a firepit by the pond for those winter skating days.
