well... the time has finally arrived...Yipeeee!!

framing started today for the pathway forms.

This has been in the makings for the last 6 months.

A big thanks to all the palm talkers who helped with the grading and prep work to make this possible.. :)

Here are just a few pic's from today.. I will post many many many more in the days to come.

I'm still unsure of what concrete to use??

Use the hard concrete Josh, it lasts longer...

 

:floor:

Zone 10a at best after 2007 AND 2013, on SW facing hill, 1 1/2 miles from coast in Oceanside, CA. 30-98 degrees, and 45-80deg. about 95% of the time.

"The great workman of nature is time."   ,  "Genius is nothing but a great aptitude for patience."

-George-Louis Leclerc de Buffon-

I do some experiments and learning in my garden with palms so you don't have to experience the pain! Look at my old threads to find various observations and tips!

Am I noticing a disproportionately low amount of New Cals? Or did I just miss them in the 14 pages of bliss?  :)

some new cals will be planted this year. with a project this size I'm target planting only the bigger full acclimated palms. Most new cal stuff needs canopy to start off with.

I'll post more pictures tonight. Phase 1 is  complete. I'm working on phase 2 the rest of the week and I hope to start phase 3 by Tuesday of next week. I'm estimating we will have completes the final phase(4) IN 2 WEEKS TIME. This concrete job is way bigger than I previously thought up on paper :) 

 

I cant wait to have this pathway project job completed. This idea had been in the works for almost 11/2 yrs and to see it come into reality is sure a kick in the pants:greenthumb:
