    First I always walk with my boot heels into the dirt a few times back and fourth in the trench, always with a rake pulling more dirt into the new made holes..

    Great clean up..

    The way I pack in the dirt it dont matter...

    The carpenters drive right over it after im done....If you look closely in 1 pic its his tire tracks....No damage there....NEXT?

    When I'm not in a rush this is how i clean up.

    See upgrade..a "Stream-Rotor" (ROTAR) or MP on a higher riser would give
    you better coverage without hosing the close-in plants. Just trying to make a
    honest "ROTARELLE" out of you.:laugh:
