Nope, 9.3 tons of fieldstone and 3.75 tons of pebbles. We used a two wheel dolly [now pretty much dead] to help move the 250+ pound pieces. It was easier to do than to try and explain how I wanted it done.

As for the back, true, but I have been lifting incorrectly for most of my life. So I think I have built up strength in that.

It is only this last couple of years that I find things that I can't just lift and move with minimum effort. It really pisses me off.

Glad to hear you finally got your rocks off.

I am next to play with rocks. I am going to do the same set up with fieldstones and pebbles for my driveway.
My biggest challenge is building a 20 foot gate. I have to decide if I want a sliding or accordion set up. I will be building the gate from scratch, so first I have to weld a frame then clad it with wood. All of the wheel bearings I took out off my cars will see a new use
