Building the road- Fruit Tree Alley

When we bought our property in February 2014, we almost immediately started planting our Fruit Tree Alley. The plan was to build a road the length of the backyard in between the trees. This would (eventually) allow for easy access to the chicken coop and to the planter beds (the planter beds are featured briefly in this post). The road will also serve as extra parking or space for events in the future. We did get an estimate for the road to be done professionally which was for $9,000! When all said and done, we did this for about $3,000 and about 100 hours of hard, sweaty work by the both of us.

Sure, halfway through the project we wanted to call it quits, but in the long run doing the labor ourselves it was the smarter choice for us. We can spend the money we saved on other projects like the chicken coop and yard.
