This project actually took place back in April, but I didn't take an "After" until recently, so it's getting posted now.
A friend of ours (name withheld for security concerns) lives in a house where two guy-wires for a utility pole were anchored right in the middle of the back yard. It created a large intrusion in the yard, and the cables were very clearly not accomplishing anything. They were very slack.
We started the project by trying to dig up the anchor.
After digging quite deep, we realized it went much deeper than we expected, so we switched to Plan B. That plan was to unbolt the hardware holding the cable, but we didn't have the appropriate tools, so we switched to Plan C, the hacksaw.
|Yes, he is standing in the hole.|
The yard now has much better feng shui.
