Since finishing the swale installation we have had dry weather. So I have been watering the newly planted covercrops and grass on the swales. I also continued shaping the berms, ditches and spillways.
The following is a series of photos showing the changes. The first photo in each set was taken at 2 weeks after the initial installation. The 2nd photo in each set shows 6 weeks after installation.
