We thought we had a lot of rock in Texas. Vince would dig down a few inches and hit about about a 2″ layer of limestone. Vince said it was “soft” and he would use a bar to break it up. Texas was the first place he had lived where he had to deal with rock and he thought that was terrible . . til he started digging here.
Vince is planting some bare root trees and shrubs and for a small hole, he’ll get anywhere from 1-1/2 gallon to 3 gallon (buckets) of rocks from each hole.
It’s really crazy how many rocks there are. There are several places where the rocks protrude above the surface of the ground.
Vince had to dig this hole bigger than he wanted to dig it just to get to the edges of the rock where he could lift it up and out of the ground.
It’s hit and miss. A couple of streets over, they seem to have very little rock. It makes planting just a few trees a lot of work!
