One goal was to get rid on dirt hill (see far left corner) in yard and replace with grass....

Hill is gone, sod is down. Also filled in holes in yard (courtesy of lab puppy) with top soil.

Parked some vehicles in front on the fresh driveway so no teenage punks decide to see how their 4X4 handles in new concrete!

OK boys, there you have it. My 3 week project in pictures! I hope you enjoy...in a feeble attempt to answer any technical questions, I went with 3500 psi concrete with air and a 5" depth. Sound right?

Great project!
I see you paid some guys to come and pour and smooth the concrete. Did you do everything else yourself?

Had to pay the finishers, they move quick and really know what they are doing. They were only on the job for 3 hours, and the 2nd truck was a half hour late. The pre work done by me and a buddy.
