The Grape Adventure - Prepping the slope

The bare slope Well, we attacked the slope this afternoon and cleared it of ice plant. I saw a little snake and all sorts of little critters whose homes we disturbed. Now we just need to remove some small bushes and the two trees (only one pictured at far left). Only about 18 of the vines will actually fit on the slope. The rest will go down in the planters in front of the existing retaining wall.
