Nice, varigated river rock, about 27 cubic yards of it?
My POs-1 were mad for river rock for mulch. All round the front and sides of the house, along the property line out to the sidewalk, along the three borders of the backyard fence, around the backyard trees, they put in load after load of river rock. They dotted in a shrub here, and a hosta there, but mostly, it was river rock.
And my POs thought that was a grand idea. So they topped it off and brought in more when they installed their above-ground swimming pool.
River rock looks nice. But it doesn't leave me the latitude I need to put in the herbacious borders I've dreamed of since I was an apartment-dweller.
I've used all I want paving the walkways in my kitchen garden (where the swimming pool used to be). And I've kept some over for spare cobbles. Now I want to get rid of the rest.
A local dealer charges $30 a cubic yard for it, without haulage. The haulage contractor who was here on Saturday will charge me $550 to dig it all up and take it away.
So does anybody within driving distance want to come to southwest Pennsylvania, and take a load away for free? Email me or leave a comment and we can make arrangements.
It's nice rock. It's just in the wrong place-- my yard.
