Crow’s Nest: Splash blocks

March 10, 2017

By Daniel Barringer, Preserve Manager

Aubrey installed this week a series of cobblestones under the dripline of the barn addition overhang. Without a gutter the rain falling off the roof was scouring away the soil beneath it. I’ll take credit (or blame) for the idea, but Aubrey, along with Riley, did all the work. Thanks also to the Building Stewardship guys for cutting a couple of the stones in half so they could be staggered. I think it looks great!
