Day 1: Conservation Landscaping Construction

The landscapers arrived early. Most of the day was digging up grass, invasive ground cover (vinca) and honeysuckle bushes.

Before: Looking uphill over ground cover

Removing ground cover

On Day 1 there's a lot of digging and pulling to get the invasives loose. 

Before: Looking downhill over invasive growth

As you look downhill (before) you can see the honeysuckle bushes and English ivy (with poison ivy hidden underneath). 

After: Looking downhill with invasives removed

The ground is pretty bare with the invasive ground covers and honeysuckles removed.
During the day, the children in the playground kept an eye on all the activity. 

At the end of the day, a youngster 
ran up and starting digging and poking, saying, "This is where they are planting a new garden. I'm going to draw some  lines to show the workers where to put things."
