Holy boulders Batman! What size equipment to move them?
So, I had a full 18 wheeler load of beautiful sandstone boulders delievered to my naked yard today. They are the beautiful red/orange color of our gorgeous Southern Utah red rock country and I do love them. When they asked me what size rock I wanted, I told them big enough for a 7 year old boy to have fun climbing on. They took me very seriously! My largest boulders are about 6 feet wide by 4 feet tall. Most of them are in the 5 feet wide by 2-3 feet tall range. I also have some smaller ones.
I don't think the skid steer the excavation guys are bringing tomorrow will be big enough to move them. I have a relatively flat lot- the boulders aren't being used for retaining, they are purely decorative. Gotta love no maintenance landscaping! Do you think the skid steer can push these babies around? We have no lawn until AFTER we get the rocks in place so they don't have to lift them.
