It is estimated that in 2019, the average US household spent about $503 on gardening and lawn care, and the figure is steadily rising as more people embrace a greener or environmentally friendly life. One of the problems many homeowners face in their yards is unwanted rocks. These can be small stones on the surface, below the soil, or large boulders. Why should you remove rocks from your yard?

  • You want to grow crops

  • It's a challenge and a health hazard when mowing. Rocks can damage the equipment or get thrown in the air posing a security risk.  

  • They interfere with your landscape

  • Large boulders pose a security threat 

  • Large rocks take a lot of space in your yard

Rocks block plant roots from reaching essential nutrients in the soil, meaning that you cannot grow healthy plants in your garden. By 2018, the number of households that had a garden was at 77%. As more and more Americans embrace gardening, the problem of rocks hinders many would-be gardeners. To deal with the situation, consult a rock removal service provider. How will they help?

Check the Magnitude of the Problem

You might have rocks on the surface of your yard or garden, but when it's mixed with the soil, it gets more complicated. The service provider will also check if there are rocks under the ground. An initial inspection will let the service provider understand the location and how best to remove the rocks.  For large boulders, they might have to use specialized equipment and more skilled labor. 

Let You Know the Best Way to Deal With the Problem

When rocks are not only on the surface, the problem will persist even after a successful removal. Also, the safety of your home and occupants must be a priority when removing the rocks. The service provider chooses an effective, fast, and appropriate method that doesn't interrupt your everyday schedule.

Also, because the company has the necessary equipment, they offer a more satisfactory job than removing the rocks independently. 

How Do You Qualify a Rock Removal Expert?

First, check their level of experience and whether they have the necessary skills and equipment to deal with the rock problem in your yard. Secondly, know the duration it will take to remove the rocks successfully and the cost.

Successfully removing the rocks from your yard enables you to landscape or have whichever plants you desire, improving the air condition in your home. This is especially important if you live near a factory or a pollutant source.
