Lots of Earth to Move and Add Continuing the Grading Near the House

Today they continued the work to move large amounts of soil from in front of the house to behind, to make some level terraces on the hill.

Now they have the slope down from the parking area to the house softened and the area right in front of the house leveled.

Here’s a view taken from the kitchen (north) side of the house where I can see some olive trees and the level area in front.

Work has also been done on the north side of the house, to level that slope and move soil to the back of the house.

(One question that arises here is the slope of the adjacent land. It will still be just the hillside, so the edge of our property will be above in some places, below in others. I’m not sure how we’ll address that. I don’t want to need to build retaining walls that aren’t in the budget.)
