The driveway paving operation to the N and across the street to the NE is completed, though there are still cars parked out in Olean Street so keep an eye out.
The difference between the recent raking of 16 yds of 3/4" stone for a driveway surface and the way it melds into the woods is particularly well demonstrated by the contrasting laying of asphalt and the way the yard becomes an extension of the street right up to the house.
This is encouraging as the stone felt like an "addition" to the site and an alteration of the landscape. This weighed on my mind as we were raking it out. True it is better for groundwater recharge but the visual is what we live with.
In truth the stone is a lesser alteration visually, and I appreciate that more now.
