I was visiting with the Mud Boys on a parking pad install job the other day when, much to my chagrin, the conversation turned to the various solutions they’ve employed to impart freedom and peace of mind in the form of additional parking space to their customers.
I lit my pipe, leaned back on a tree for a smoke, then settled in for an eye glazing dissertation on the finer points of two inch gravel.
“What did I get myself into now?” I mused…obviously I’d forgotten how passionate Mud Monkeys® is about their work.. “Egads, this conversation could go on all day!”
I woke up just in time to catch this juicy little tidbit:
“We’ve added space beside an existing asphalt drive, we’ve installed a loop parking pad from a side street to the front of a property, we’ve cut a small loop parking area that loops back to the same street, we’ve even put in culverts to cross drainage ditches, permitting yard access where we then made a nice parking area,” explained Jim, a long term Mud Monkey employee.
“We have installed huge lots for commercial use and we’ve created parking inside fenced areas using railroad ties as stops to prevent cars accidentally damaging fencing,”
Being of Simian descent I certainly hate playing second banana, but by Jove, I must say, if you need extra parking space don’t call me, call the boys with the experience to do it right the first time!

It was just scant days ago I was reporting on Mud Monkeys’ jobs wearing long johns and ski mittens. What a difference a week makes!
I’ll grab a spot of tea and invite you to review these pics I took over the last two weeks wearing nothing more than my red Nike tennis shoes and matching scarf. (It’s totally cool, ol’ chap, I do have fur in all the right places you know!
Well… in most of them anyway : )

If you own a waterfront home you probably know all too well the feeling of watching your highly valuable property erode.
It’s kind of like watching your stocks tank in a bear market.
Or my own personal fear: that delightful yellow fruit, rotting away in the banana bowl…egads… perish the thought!
But exactly seventy-seven years after the Japanese devastated Pearl Harbor, it was so good to witness something positive on an American shoreline: the Veteran owned and operated Mud Monkeys. halting a serious water erosion issue for one Ashland City homeowner.
The weapon of choice? Forget the machine guns and P-51 Mustangs, this was rip rap, six to twelve inch stone, loaded into a tri-axle and placed using Mud Monkey’s Bobcat track machine.
I’ve seen these jobs botched before, they are extremely difficult to fix by hand due to the irregular shape and weight of the stone. But Mud Monkey’s highly skilled, experienced Bobcat operator made short work of it,
Tawnya, the Mud Monkeys’ customer, agreed it was expertly accomplished and expressed her pleasure with the work, knowing the serious erosion problem had been halted for good. “You did an excellent job, I’m very happy!,” she exclaimed.
And no wonder:
While there is always damage when running a Bobcat on lawn, it doesn’t usually tear out roots so the grass will come back. Smoothing it up, though is critical and, as you can see, even working in mud, Mud Monkey’s operator is second to none in that regard.
If you have an erosion problems contact Mud Monkeys today for a quote on having rip-rap installed.
It’s not a cheap job for sure but a lot less expensive than losing feet of your valuable shoreline!
It works on eroding drainage ditches as well.
And that’s the way it was, December 7th, 2018, roving reporter Mud. D. Monkey signing off.
Why people waste time and money for years, moving cars around in their driveways, escapes me.
The very thought reminds me of the movie Groundhog Day… and something about the definition of insanity?
It doesn’t cost that much to add extra parking space.
No more, “Could you move your car? I need out!”
Eliminate the embarrassing, “Oh no, The Kennedy’s just dropped by and had to park in the street!”
Say goodbye to, “Metro just fined us again for parking in the grass!”
And you do KNOW what your neighbor John and his wife Emily are saying, right? “I thought the (insert your last name here) were pretty smart cookies but just look at them jocking those cars around their driveway again! (Emily laughs heartily).
Oh, wouldn’t you love to cut that daily discourse off at the pass?
In a supposedly civilized society, everyone and I do mean everyone, deserves ample parking, what are we, animals? (Don’t answer that : )
