For this portion of the project we used a 25 ton of Virginia Red Limestone boulders to create a border and retain the slope for 2 ton of Lilac Flagstone for the patio. The polymeric sand mix was Gator Dust - Stone Grey. All the materials were sourced through Federouch Landscape Supply Yard in Canonsburg, PA.
All the excavating and heaving duty work was completed with a Ditch Witch SK mini skid steer. For such a small machine, it packs a ton of power. Some of the boulders were so large that we had to strap them to the bucket of the machine and drag and push them into place but this machine never stopped. We definitely would recommend this machine to anyone in need of a powerful machine for small area work where a large machine would be cumbersome. The machine was sourced through Knickerbocker Russell Equipment in Robinson Township, PA
