It wouldn't be too hard. Maybe hinge the outer edges of the vent panels and pin the inside edges for quick release... something like that.

I hate getting to the dump after driving on the highway for 15-20 minutes and having two more feet of space in the top due to the settling.

It sounds like it would be a quick and cheap fix.

doesn't hurt that the weather has really been a help lately-not much wind, warm and dry. Great leaf weather. (I need about 3 more weeks of this.lol)

Absolutely. It's been almost perfect. We had a bit of a bad period with some wind and rain early on in the leaf season but the past couple weeks it's been great. Just now, the leaves are starting to dry out and get dusty. Until now, they've been just damp enough for no dust and easy blowing. We are not behind at all and will hit every stop before Thanksgiving. Even squeezed one in tonight.

PerfectEarth,
Your work is outstanding, how do you remove the grass and debris from the plant beds? Do you till the area and then shovel everything out. Thanks in advance.

Thanks! It's been nice having this box this year... and now we know what little things to add for next year to make it even better.

Thanks for checking out the thread. In new landscapes, there's more than one way to create the bed- sometimes by hand (spading or using a sod knife on the grass or top layer of ground,) sometimes with a sod cutter, and sometimes we spray it out and are ready to till, add soil, and build the bed. Every situation is different... most involve lots of elbow grease! Our Dingo machine also helps to remove any existing plants, etc...
