About Jim Locksley

One day when I was walking around my college campus, I saw a group of people with these yellow tripods. At first I thought they might be photographers, but they sure looked like strange ones! I went up and asked them what they were doing, and it turns out they were a group of students from a construction class who were surveying the land for a project. I was fascinated. I was able to sign up for the class the next semester, and while it didn't stick or change my professional trajectory, it did create a new hobby for me! Ever since then, I've been interested in construction, from surveying to management to the actual building. I figured running a blog about it would give me a nice excuse to keep up my interests!

How To Easily Get Rid Of The Extra Rocks That You Have Unearthed On Your Property

by Mike Brewer

Whether you are digging up your yard for an in-ground pool or you simply needed to dig around the foundation of your home, you are bound to come across a lot of rocks that you either do not want to put back into the ground or will no longer have a use for. So what will you do with those rocks? This is where the following tips and hints will come in handy for you. All you have to do is take a moment to check out the following suggestions in order to learn what might work the best for your personal situation.

Hire A Company To Remove Them

There are some companies, such as DyTech, out there that are in the business of hauling rocks. If you have a substantial amount of large rocks that you are unable to move on your own, this might be your best option. Sure, you are going to have to spend a little bit of money in order to take advantage of this service, but it will be well worth it since you are not going to have to deal with the hassle of removing the rocks on your own.

Offer Them Up For Grabs

Believe it or not, you might find that getting rid of the rocks for free is an easy thing to do, especially if they are large rocks that some people might want to use as pieces in their landscape design. Then again, they may not have to be landscaping quality if someone is simply in need of fill for a large hole on their property that they have to fill in. All you have to do to find such people is to post an advertisement online, such as the local yard sale site or even on your favorite social media page. If you live on a road that gets a lot of traffic, you might be able to get attention by putting a sign in your yard indicating that you have free rocks for grabs.

Have The Contractors Take Them With Them

Did you hire a company to dig up your yard? If so, you might want to offer the rocks to them. They may be able and willing to remove all of the large rocks for you simply because they have the ability to use them elsewhere on a different job site. This saves the contractors money while helping out a customer.

As you can see, there are several ways you can attempt to have the large rocks removed from your property. Whether you use just one method or a couple of them, you should be able to have your yard free of large rocks before you know it.
