    Man, that looks good. Is there going to be river rock between the bed and the road?

    Exactly! There will be a river rock edge along the driveway and partially up the edge of the left slope.

    Really nice work!! What do you use to dig the holes for the plants, augers on the dingo, or shovel?

    No prize, Tim. Sorry. here's a beer...:drinkup:

    In a situation like these last pictures, everything is tilled deep (the soil was perfect) so planting 3 gallons is a breeze with a hognose shovel. A lot of the time I use my Mantis or Stihl tiller to literally dig the holes. Shreds the soil great, I hate working with clumps and I don't backfill the holes with clumps and clods. I use the Stihl Earth Auger with a 5 inch bit to quickly plug in 1 gallon stuff.

    I only have forks and the standard bucket for the Dingo. I don't want to spend on other attachments right now that I only use here and there. I can rent those, like the big auger. Soon, i will definitely get the larger "light material" bucket cause I use the Dingo so much like a wheelbarrow lately...

    With the Dingo? No.

    I've graded lots, constructed golf course fairways, tees, greens, all types of property, residential and commercial- all at my old job.. I was the "grade/soil prep guy"... but never with the Dingo. Have one lined up soon though where I might use it....

    Some boring pics.... shadehouse where I keep plants, my new (used) seeder which is handy, and my soil pile. The skid steer is not mine. I use it to load up from soil deliveries though... This is my leased shop property.
