I've been at it again working on a new project - "Little Rock" in Frederick MD. One of the first steps are digging for the foundation.
I started with my skid loader to prep the site. Then wrap up with the basic lay out with a hand shovel. Digging about 3" - 4" inchs down. My foundation stones range from 5" - 8" inchs in height. Once I start placing my stones I normally do my last digging with my Rapid Digger. This tool makes my job quick - making placements of each and every stone happy to sit on earth.
