Well, the chaps have been working hard today. We have a bunch of rocks starting to form the faux riverbed area and the bed for the new patio has been laid. They'll be back tomorrow and expect to get it finished by the end of the day.
Here's a Bobcat carrying one of our new trees. They've put it in the garage overnight to stop it getting attacked by deer before it is planted. They will eat this tree but it's big enough that once it is in the ground, it will survive and grow taller than the deer.
The Bobcat was also used for carting all the gravel for the patio across to the site. They only had it for one day so tomorrow's gravel will have to be done by shovel and wheelbarrow.
Here's a look at the whole site (weird perspective due to photo stitching):

The patio is clearly visible on the right. Behind this area will go two new trees. A few plants are in the ground but most are waiting until the rock area is finished.
It looks good from the ground - expect further updates in due course!
