Prepping the Chess Knoll

Welcome to the start of an idea I’ve had since we moved in. Today we broke ground, or more aptly played in the dirt, leveling the Chess Knoll in front of our house.

Technically its not a knoll but the great thing about names is they don’t have to be explicit. This patchy unused space is being flattened thanks to the assistance of the little ones in preparation for the outdoor chess board. As an unexpected win the remaining paving stones we got from my sister’s retaining wall were exactly what we needed to finish.

It may only look like a sand pit but once I find the proper stone pavers it’ll pop… now to figure out what stone to get and if I could grow moss between them.
