Sculpture and the Garden

Time to call the professionals for the concrete cutting.

The goal was to recycle all the concrete for other garden projects, 
for that I needed consistent sized blocks. 
 I told him "Think of the driveway as a quarry."

It was so nice to have someone else working, but it only took him 4 hours..
Soon it was back to me prying up the slabs and digging out gravel,

and re-installing the leaf block retaining wall.
You can see one reuse of the concrete in the photo below.

Because there's no fastener or connection between the decorative blocks, 
there is a backer block of concrete at each seam, set below grade up, snug against the paving. 
There's no way these blocks are moving easily.
