grading by wheelbarrow

2013 08 12: we’re protecting the cherry tree, described in the first post, by manually grading the soil near the garage. if the grading were done by machine, soil would be compacted over the cherry tree roots. the tree’s roots under the compaction would not have access to adequate air and water. if there is a large compacted area over the tree’s roots, it could kill the tree.

this is hard, hard, work.
