Mar 25

If you're like many homeowners, there are probably a few landscaping stones scattered about your yard. It's time to get rid!

Landscaping stones can be difficult to transport and often get in your way while you are trying to plant flowers or mowing the lawn. Here's how to get rid off landscaping rocks.

Landscaping: What is it?

Landscaping can be described as the act of changing the visible features of a particular area of land.

  • Hardscaping (installation structures such as patios, decks, fences, etc.)
  • Softscaping: Planting trees, shrubs, flowers.
  • Grading
  • Drainage

Why People Use Landscaping Rocks

There are a few reasons why someone might want to plant landscaping rocks in their garden:

Aesthetics. Some people believe that landscaping stones can enhance the visual appeal of a yard.

Functionality. In some cases landscaping rocks can be used to aid in drainage or erosion control.

How do you get rid of landscaping rocks

There are a few things you can do if you don't want your landscaping rocks anymore.

  • It is best to hire a professional for the removal.
  • Rent a Bobcat and other types of excavators to do it yourself.
  • Selling the rocks to someone who needs them.
  • Free the rocks

Do You Want to Get Rid Of Landscaping Stones All By Yourself?

You'll need some equipment to help you remove the landscaping rock. You have the option to rent or purchase a Bobcat excavator or another type. Once you have an excavator, it is necessary to use it to dig out the rocks and then haul them off. This option is more labor-intensive and takes longer, but it will also save you money since it doesn't cost you to have someone else do it.

Selling Landscaping Rocks

You could also consider selling the landscaping stones. This is a good idea if you believe someone may be interested in purchasing them for their own landscaping project. You can sell them online or in your local classifieds. So that potential buyers are aware of what they are getting, make sure you include photos and descriptions. Information about the origin of the rocks and their price may be helpful. This can be a time-consuming process, but it will pay off if you are able to find a buyer willing or able to pay good money for the stones.

Donating Landscaping Stones

You can donate rocks to charity if the rocks are not for sale. Many organizations will accept donations of landscaping materials, even rocks. You can contact your local Habitat for Humanity ReStore, or another similar organization, to inquire if they are willing to take your rocks.

Recycling Landscaping Rocks

Another option to consider is recycling the rocks. It may not be possible with all kinds of rock, but it's something worth considering. For landscaping materials such like rocks, check with your local recycling centre.

Disposing Of The LandscapingRocks

As a last option, you could always dispose of the rock. This should only be done as a last resort. The rocks will cost money to remove and end up in landfills where they can't be used for any useful purpose. If this is your only option, you can call your local waste management firm to find out how they recommend disposing the rocks.
