I would have liked to have company digging the sod and setting the sculpture in, but it went pretty smooth. I draped a sand bag over the cross section, covered the dirt with plastic and filled in the crushed stone. On the way home I picked up 2 more buckets to add when I get back to Merryspring, so there is no more plastic showing.
nice view from the lili bed
the crushed stone gives the sculpture a nice base to sit on
