A bit of reflection, the doggy pen is around the tables to keep the crazy yorkies from tasting the epoxy drippings.
Paper around everything, cardboard on the floor to catch drippings.

Easy to do once you do a test item. Have a good heat gun or a propane torch, chop brush, drip protection. With lighter markings ie the black, you can make it look like carrara marble. We choose the darker markings just because. lol well we like the look.

I've been slaving like a prisoner on a chain gang for the last week and I'm not done yet. Our road on one side of our private drive has thick grass growing in several inches of dirt over the black top. The road is way long, maybe over a 1000' or so. In some places the grass and the dirt are growing a foot or so onto the top of the road. So I decided to take it on myself using just a spade and my hands as nobody else was gonna do it and besides that I ate too many sweets over the holidays and need to lose a few lbs. I go out each day for a couple hours and work till I'm almost dead. I crawl into the house after that and lay there dormant till the next day and start all over again................after my 6 mile walk of course everyday. Have to get that in first or it would not get done. You can see the line out in the road where the grass and moss grew and you don't need to tell me I'm crazy as I'm quite familiar w/that term. Oh and you know all that talk about me not being able to dig a bog.....................all lies :D

ah, you want to know a quicker/easier way? I'm assuming you get SOME snow and that SOME City agency plows, if not, this idea won't fly. But if they do, whatcha do is move the road markers a foot inside. When that blade comes a plowin', it'll cut and throw all that overgrowth back to the side(s). I run into this often; if the homeowner doesn't 'mark' their driveway, the winter plow peeps miss and take 6" off either side. That's why they mostly mark the way now. Not all municipalities do this but YOU could take it on yourself to get some orange sticks and put them a food inside the road line; I bet any City driver would just use your guidelines and not even think about it. :cool::p

Then again, wouldn't want you to lose your reason for eating chocolate, I guess...:p

You've done a magnificent job. Don't suppose there's a gas powered edger for rent anywhere near you? My back is aching in sympathy.
Thanks. It's ok I needed the exercise and I only have a few feet left after today. I do come in really sore tho. Not so much tonight tho, guess I,m getting used to it. Maybe I'll put myself up for hire...................NOT o_O

A lot of 25 year olds don't do much of anything anymore except stare at different boxes so not hard to compete w/that at all.
