Rocks Are Not Free

The whole planning of the yard has been a very big job. Its my first landscape project. I have probably measured and drawn the backyard 1/2 a dozen times. I plan and then replan. I have sketched, made sample color pallets and done it all over again. I have gone from structured to organic. Brick paths have turned into gravel walkways.

I think I am driving myself crazy.

All that said.

I ordered the sod for saturday pick up. I tried to order the mexican pebbles for the walkways but the 600 sq. ft almost turned into $3,000. I need to go back and look at rocks again. There is no way I am paying that kinda money for rocks. I rather drive to mexico and get them myself.

Ugh-

we just get quarter inch gravel (or something like that). it's grey. it's cheap. it looks pretty good. rocks are crazy expensive. it kills me spending tons of money on them.
