Rocks are really heavy, especially the prettiest ones. And well you need a lot more rocks then you realize to make the garden look just right, then you have to put in plants and a water feature and pavers, then haul in lots of wood chips and spread them around just right. And then after all that back breaking work you have to go out and pull the weeds. Believe me it's a workout and then some, but it's very satisfying and adds curb appeal to the house and then it all looks so good you get more ideas for the rest of the yard...
A friend of mine has this great body, she's almost 60 and is absolutely cut head to toe, she has landscaped most of her 20 acre parcel, it's gorgeous and so is she. Last summer I did some landscaping and skipped the gym for about 3 months.
