Making new parking area for the new Outback

Well i have taken on a project that will probably leave me with a sore back for awhile but when im finished it will be worth it. I just couldn't keep the new trailer on the slanted grass and dirt and mud. So i am in the process of making a level surface of crushed stone to park the new Outback on. I wish i had the $$ to just have the driveway redone and have them pave on the side of the garage but not this year. So this will do for the time being.
Wish me Luck!

Nice chunk of land you’ve got there. Nothing wrong with crushed stone. It’ll look more camp-like and drain better.

Wow that is some nice looking grass. Only thing that grows down here that good is weeds.

With lawn that green, you surely don't have much time for camping! (he he he)
Nice project! Good luck and I hope your back holds up!

Thanks guys but i give all the credit to Trugreen that treats my lawn with all the right chemicals!! All I'm able to do is make the straight lines when i mow.. And it is killing me that i have had the new camper for 6 weeks now and still haven't had time to take the maiden voyage! This coming holiday weekend will change that!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Very nice looking parking area and lawn.....

Out here in SOCAL the houses seem to all have big gates in front of
the RV parking area, mine included. About 4 years back I had the old
TT in a storage lot at $120 a month and when they wanted to raise
it another $20 a month I broke down and tore out my side yard plants,
brick flower bed and grass and added a 16' wide X 60' long slab of
concrete with drain system built into it behind a 6' tall gate across the
front. Now both my TT and my 18' open car trailer have parking at the
house.

My lawn does not look that nice either, but then when I looked into
Truegreen they wanted $700 for a years worth of treatments, have
not decided which direction we are going yet.

I had to give up my grass lawn for the fifth wheel, uggg. I am trying to figure out how to have a little bit of green in the desert and still have the RV here. I am pouting a bit though, but it being here just makes more sense. The girl in me I guess.

I'm lucky when I purchased my house I have a concrete driveway that goes around the house and down to the basement garage, so my camper set's there.

Boy that is some really GREEN grass bro
