This North Slope Gardener sent in a tale of clearing "enough rubble to fill a dump truck," to make this sleek patio. Send your Garden of the Day submissions here. Glass, wires, bricks, porcelain, stone, boulders and I swear a piece of a meteorite (the stone was so heavy for its moderate size) had to be unearthed and removed. First step was getting a few different estimates that ranged from $13K to $24K just to remove debris, level, and install bluestone over sand and bluestone dust and also create two raised beds 3' by 12' and 3' by 16' with bluestone caps and cultured stone facade over cinder block. I also installed pipes and snaked wires for accent lighting in both planters underneath the bluestone.
