This is the closest I have here...just imagine grass. I ended up digging about another 3 or 4 inches out of this hole before adding the gravel and sand. Boy that was fun. Oh ya, and no bobcat...just a shovel and a wheelbarrow.
Nice work. on the tub!! Moving into a new pad in a month or so. Most of the work is done, hot tub included!!! I have some minor things around the place to do once we move in but the big one will be setting up my garage / work shop!!!!!!!!! My domain. My place that I go to be alone with my bike and my tools. (CHEV NOW POUNDING CHEST!!!!)
