      Iím already done for the day , once I got it all cleared out to the road it just donít look as big .
      This lot is 1.3 acres .
      The city keeps the lake pumped up so itís all ways just below the concrete golf cart bridge during dry spells.
      With heavy rains it gets over the bridge until the pumps bring it back down to normal levels

      Looks like a staggering amount of work, Delbert. But wow, really lovely. The light coming through the trees is remarkable. Glad you're watching out for that poison ivy!

      A little history about the property

      The man that built this home and hill in Newport built a duplicate in Arizona at the same time in 1980
      His farm family had donated the ground for the golf course decades earlier.
      They hauled in dirt for all most of a year to make the Hill.

      I started working around the house for his widow in 85
      I can remember a big round fountain , with a giant spray head with balls and lights . I never had seen it working .

      After she passed in 2000 a local car dealer, the son of a famous ball player bought it and partied hard in the home until he to passed away leaving his wife with the home

      No one has ever been able to keep the grounds too it full potential .

      Now that everything is mature itís amazing
      The house is a 3400 sq ft 2 bedroom , 5 bath home made for comfort



      Sorry the KeyStone went down to easy that nite

      First time I have seen this thread. I love the look of a Cypress swamp like that. Beautiful. A lot of work, but it will be worth it.

      Well I bought my tractor home from the farm to bush hog the other end of the property.

      It was steeper than I thought once I backed into it .

      I got some of it mowed then sprayed it hard.

      I used my weed eater on the bank to clean it up

      Looks really really good. I have not even mowed my Lawn in a month, my allergies have been off the scale and my pots are all about dead from the lack of rain its just been too hot and the mosquitos have finally hit. They did not bother me at all until now.

      Thanks Gary

      We have been just the opposite . Really dry all summer and started getting good rains in August.
      My plants were slow to get going this year but are looking decent right now .
      Iím still watering hard

      Lil Ronís .... yard is going to be easy to take care of once I get it all cleared
      He can mow it in about a hr.
      Itís just a beautiful setting
