We dug out trenches between the roof support posts and buried railroad ties to act as edges. I had 10 ton of gravel delivered Friday to use for the driveway and other planned projects. It took about 1500 lb to fill in the area we had under roof.
The end result was 2 very muddy chicken people and a flock of dry footed Pencil Rocks. Our dog Dillon approved also, he hates getting his paws wet and always made a big production of high stepping through the area before.
The rooster laid claim to the cut ends from the RR ties...lol
