Landscaping: Elevating by Back-filling

As our compound is built on former rice land, which is rather low for this purpose, we decided to elevate the area within the fences (our compound) to get rid of the water in the garden when it's flooding.

Back-filling is a word that I learned here in the Philippines. It is short for the process of elevating a piece of land. The truck drives backwards to the edge of the lower part of the land and then dumps it load. Next it then drives further back over its own load to make it stable for the next dump load.
