DIRT!

Postby Ken » Mon May 23, 2011 8:37 am

So we need some dirt, to do something pretty pretty pretty cool out at everyone's favorite local park with dirt trails. Anyone got the hook up? Delivery options? How's it going?

How many yards/truck loads do we need?

without knowing the exact measurements to do the lengthxwidthxheightx1.3 for compaction I would guess for the single berm and table exit, 20+ yards minimum (that would be allow for a small table). I do know, if more happens to get dropped there it all will be used.

The site is actually quite accessible, except maybe not by low rider pickups...

Dingo could be used as well, but that equals significantly tromped / compacted delivery path, fo sho! Either way, would be nice to get it going...

Ha ha!

More realistic...

I called a guy about an ad for dirt and he quoted me:

$200 / 16 tons. Sounded like he could be talked down a little, but not dirt cheap.

Dan, where can you pick up the free dirt from the city? Might take a few pickup loads but it'd be nice to get it for free.

Does not the city technically own Beverly?

If the city is giving away free dirt to homeowners, you'd think they'd be willing to give themselves as much dirt as themselves need. Although I actually think it's Linn County (at the landfill?) giving away the dirt to homeowners.

I would think that since LAMBA is a 503c blah blah blah that SOMEONE out there would donate dirt. I mean, my god, the world is made of it!!!!!!!!!

$200 / 16 tons.

3000lbs per yard

16tons = ~10yards

I paid $100 delivered per 10 yards.

free dirt is great but go on-site and look at the dirt before you agree to anything. not all dirt is created equal

10-14 yards for the average dump truck (like the one in my thread). Most prices will be based on what they can haul in a single load as the delivery fee is the price hog.

Got us some dirt, a dump trailer, and a dingo... all we need now are some bodies to move the dirt around, tamp it, and ride it.

Like I mentioned HERE, will be heading out to Beverly various times this weekend to at the very least get the dirt on site.

Here's a sketch of the plan...
