I which you had mentioned what not to do with boulders and that is turn them vertical. I can't believe the number of people who do that making their yard look like a graveyard of tombstones. Someday I'm going to get a piece of chalk and write RIP on them.

We were actually thinking about getting some rock removal, but instead we decided to work around it. Turned out to be the better option. I think we might even get more rocks, I think we can afford $200 a ton. I like the rock bench out of all of them though. Maybe we'll do something similar.
