More back yard before and after: setting flagstones

In addition to the gravel terrace, I am adding some large flagstones in areas that get heavy wear and tear from the dogs. This task was made much easier over the weekend when Walu gave me a Troy Bilt electric cultivator for my birthday. Naturally, I had to try it out right away:


With the cultivator, a task that normally would have taken me about three days to complete took all of an hour. Why oh why did I wait so long to ask for one?

My hope is that the stones will allow some of the Bermuda grass enough respite to grow back. Even if that doesn't happen, though, the flagstones will at least look better than the bare dirt.
