We have an empty field by our house that is being made into a subdivision, and now that they have started work on it the wind has blown 6 to 8 inches of dirt in certain spots in among the rock in my front yard. I'm looking for any ideas on how to get it all out.

  • Do you mean there's an 8" layer of dirt in your yard? or the dirt has trickled down 8" into rocks?

If you have that much dirt blown into your yard, I'm also gussing your porch, windows, sills, and any other surfaces are also dirty.

Just hit with a hose, as you wash everthing else. The dirt will make it's way thorugh the gaps in the rocks and wash out.


I've had good results with a similar problem using a leaf blower - blow it back at them!
