Got the base in and ready. Most if the concrete forms are in. Going to build a wall tomorrow and I should be ready to pour concrete next week.

Crushed recycled concrete. Locks in and gets harder than base.

They give you back $2 for the grass but it will cost more in A/c.

They also recently realized what happens to the water tables when you concrete over everything and run all the rain runoff to the ocean. Means good business for me. I personally am not a concrete guy at all but in this desert it's the easiest option so I am running with it.
