Tips For Getting Rid Of Excess Rocks From Your Yard

Posted on

Whether you are digging up your yard to install an in-ground pool or you have to dig along your foundation wall for repairs, you might end up with a lot of rocks that will need to be disposed of. There are many things that you can do in order to ensure that your yard gets nice and clear of all rocks, both big and small. Take a moment to review those options so you will be able to find the method that will work the best for you.

List The Rocks For Free

You might not think that anyone would want those big rocks in your yard, but there are a lot of people out there looking for certain types and sizes of rocks to add to their landscape design or to use as fill for a large hole on their property. If you live on a busy street, you can place a large sign at the front of your property stating that there are large rocks for free for whoever can haul them. Another way to get word out is to list the free rocks online or in a local free want ads. Even if you are only able to get rid of half of them for free, that is a lot of rocks that you are not stuck dealing with.

Call A Landscaping Company

Make a call to a few different landscaping companies that sometimes sell landscape or filler rocks to their customers. One of those companies might be more than happy to come and take those rocks off of your hands free of charge. Some might even give you a little bit of money. Either way, both you and the landscape company benefit from the arrangement so it is worth the phone call. The best thing about this option is that you know that those companies will have the proper equipment for loading and hauling the rocks without ever asking for you assistance. For more information, contact a company like DyTech.

As you can see, there are a few good ways to make sure that you are not going to have to deal with those rocks in your yard for much longer. The sooner you start making phone calls or posting an advertisement, the sooner the rocks will be gone and you can get your yard back to normal. After all, once those rocks leave, you might have some debris to clean up and possibly the need to reseed that section of your yard if the grass died.
