Okay, I have a bit of an issue that is hanging over from last year and needs to be dealt with so I need some suggestions.
When my helpers dug my garden last year they decided in their infinite wisdom to pile up the grass that had to be cleared until a little later at which point they would shake off the dirt and get rid of it. Well that didn't happen so now I literally have a heap on my back lawn.
there isn't really anywhere for me to move it to get rid of it unless I pay someone to come dig it up and throw it on their truck to take away. By now I imagine all the lower layer is just soil and there is grass growing on top. It's about 6' X 3' and goes from 0 to 2' high. It's sitting near the rear of the yard about 6' away from the fence, so basically a heap in the middle of nowhere. For sure the grass that was under it is dead now but I can always throw seed down if it is cleared.
I'm looking for ideas of what to do with it that will be the most cost effective and least amount of heavy labour. If it's as good in soil as the rest of my yard, it's great soil so I'm thinking maybe I could build a frame around it and make it a raised bed in the middle of nowhere instead of a lump. That would save me doing much more than moving the stuff around a bit to level it and building the frame. Of course one issue is how to make it look like something other than it was just thrown in that area with no thought because it's not really even in a corner or anything.
It might be neat to have a little pond in front and leave the lump, add some rocks and plants, but too much work and expense I think.
I thought of spreading it around but that will kill my back probably so I want to avoid back problems.
So, what would you do with a large lump when you really have no desire for it but need to deal with it?
