Removing dirt from rock

caseydJune 4, 2007

I have 2 areas of my yard with rock. One is/was a dog run, and the other a drain system along by back fence. The dog run is river rock/gravel and was put over plastic sheeting which is now filled with weeds. The drain is full of dirt. What is the best way to seperate the rock from the dirt so I can re-use it. Is there some type of screen/sifter I can rent?

hi Casey
Its simple to make a sifter with screen and some lumber. Kinda like a frame with screen in it.
any debri thats left on the rocks you should be able to hose off.
