The rain finally stopped and the project team met to get the restoration project started. The first thing the contractor and his crew will be doing is building plywood boxes to cover and protect the benches and the ripple as well as creating the construction entrance to the site. Over the next two weeks, workers will be protecting trees, the Menotomy Indian Hunter sculpture and more. A fence will be put up and pruning will be done to ensure that the trees don’t suffer from accidental damage. Then work on the lower pool will begin.
The Contractor submitted his own images to document the site prior to beginning the work. These are his photographs.
This slide show documents work on the site starting from the installation of the fence, the protection of the benches and ripple, the removal of the bricks, coping stones and upper pool stones and the beginning of excavating the reflecting pool
