Well, you can make all the plans in the world, but then, there is reality! Plans got changed due to the fact that some products were not readily available such as nursery stones when I needed them, but I ordered them from Green Valley Decorative Rock and got them in a reasonable time frame. The dirt I ordered became available a day early due to a cancelation making a delivery slot available a day earlier than my original delivery date. Heinz and I also decided to cut down all the Texas Ranger plants and let them grow back so they can be properly shaped. This is a common practice. If you live in Green Valley, AZ and go to the Los Agave restaurant, they had this done a year or so ago, and now they look really good as opposed to looking "wild" previously. You will see some additional work in following videos that was not originally planned, but are definitely good things to do, and the right time to do them!!! I hope you enjoy watching. Sorry I have not made a video lately, but I have been busy actually doing the work!!!

This is a bigger project than I thought. That large pile of dirt delivered to your driveway somehow has to get into your backyard! Enjoying watching and seeing your progress. That one blue agave is huge!

Hi Bart, I looked at the street view of Los Agaves restaurant, and there is only an April 2018 view. The plants (shrubs) are probably beautifully flowering by now, after the pruning. Good luck with your project!!

It gets to the back yard mostly by shoveling in to a wheelbarrow and walking it through my breezeway and in to the back yard. 16 shovel loads per wheelbarrow. I already have 10 tons of dirt back there now, and 8 of 20 tons of gravel so far. It is quite the project, actually a bit more than I planned on originally. My neighbor, Heinz is making me do things the proper way while we have access to do so which I am thankful for. Yes, the blue agave is truly an awesome plant, I LOVE it! I appreciate you taking the time to follow along and watch the progress!!!

Hmmmm, wonder why Google is so far behind on pictures???? Anyhow, the Texas Rangers at Los Agaves are not currently blooming, but they look MUCH better than before they were cut back. I wish there was a way to send you a picture, but I do not see one.
