“Eric was quick to respond to my emails and got me on the schedule right away. I had a huge landscape project that ended up taking well over 100 hours of labor. Each of the crews showed up on time and worked very hard shoveling river rock. I would highly recommend His Workmanship” – Candy

My family has hired His Workmanship twice—once for moving and then most recently for landscaping rock removal. The staff have been on time, professional, hardworking, and courteous. Communication via their website form (to submit a job request) and email (to confirm job details) has been very prompt. Great experiences with this business!

These guys are fantastic! They showed up on time, worked pretty much non-stop, were polite and respectful, and finished the job completely. I highly recommend them.

The guys were fantastic. It was a very hot day, out AC wasn't working and they just kept chugging along. They encouraged us to use them for whatever we needed for the entire time we paid for. Very impressed with their hard work and it was very reasonable compared to other moving companies.

Simply put, excellent. I cannot speak highly enough about His Workmanship. Professional from my first contact. Eric responded immediately. I was able to schedule my requested job very quickly. And the two young men who were sent to my location were on time, polite, enthusiastic, and fast. They did a better job than all the other landscape companies with whom I have worked. I highly recommend them.

If you need the rock hauled away, then it’ll cost more. If you are fine having the rock piled up on site or relocating it to another area, then it’ll cost less. A small amount of rock (less than 2 cubic yards) will cost around $580 to remove or $380 to relocate. A medium amount of rock (4 cubic yards) will cost around $900 to remove or $500 to relocate. A large amount of rock (6 cubic yards) will cost around $1,340 to remove or $620 to relocate. Note- 1 cubic yard is about 12 full wheelbarrows of rock.
Rocks make it much harder to plant in your gardens. Flowers have a hard time surviving with all the heat that radiates off the rock. River rocks can damage lawn mower blades if they spill over onto the grass. If the rock hasn’t been professionally designed, then it can be a major eye sore. It’s far too easy for weeds to grow up in-between the rocks. Click here to learn why mulch is a better choice than rock.
The best way to separate dirt from the landscaping rocks around your house is by sifting them. You’ll need to build a wooden frame and then put metal fencing with 1/2 inch spacing on top of the frame. Then shovel the dirty rocks onto the fencing and use a garden hoe to move them around. The dirt should strain through the chicken wire fencing and the cleaned rocks will stay on the top. Click here to watch a video showing how this process works.
Yes, it’s possible but very messy so it’s not a recommended method. You cannot simply keep the rocks in the landscape bed and spray them with a hose. That would be easy but ineffective. Why? Because the dirt won’t get removed from the rocks. Instead, you’ll need to shovel the rock onto a metal sieve and then spray them. This will clean off the rocks and allow you to reuse them.
There is such a thing as a rock vacuum. It’s a very big and expensive machine that you’d need to rent. The rock vac doesn’t dispose of the rocks for you though. All it does is suction up the rocks and pour them out onto your wheelbarrow. The machine doesn’t suck up the rocks that fast either, as you can see from this video.
The best approach is to remove the rock by using a shovel and wheelbarrow. One tip to make this easier is to spread the work out over a long period of time. For example, work in 30 minute increments for 2-3 days over the course of a week. It might take about 1 month to accomplish your whole project, but at least you’ll save your back from a lot of pain! Click here to learn about 3 strategies for removing landscape rock.
Yes, you’re in luck if there is landscape barrier fabric underneath the rock. You can pull up the fabric so the rock gets piled up. Rock in piles is not as hard to shovel as a thin layer of rock. If you have another person helping, you can each grab onto both ends of the fabric and lift up the rocks so they can be dumped into a wheelbarrow. This saves you the work of having to shovel them.
Before you decide to dispose of your landscape rock, you should look into options where the rock could be repurposed. Post on social media like Facebook marketplace or Nextdoor to see if anybody nearby would be willing to take them for free. Alternatively, try to think about ways you could reuse the rock on your own property. For example, rock can be reused as fill for a retaining wall or patio. Or you could make a berm by pilling up the rock and then adding a fresh 2-3 inch layer of dirt on top.
Unfortunately, bagster dumpster bags do not accept rock. Your local trash company won’t take them away in bins either. Dumping rock in a public woods or on private property is illegal so you don’t wanna do that. Some yard waste sites accept rock and others do not so be sure to call and ask first.
If you own a truck and trailer (or can borrow one) then just google “yard waste sites that accept rock near me” and you’ll probably find one. Landfills are usually willing to accept landscape rock too. If you don’t have a means for hauling away the rock, then you could rent a rolloff dumpster and manually load the rocks in there via wheelbarrow and shovel. The dumpster company will come pick up the rocks for you.
You should try to get a ballpark estimate on the total cost for your project. Ask the rock removal service how long they’ve been doing it and what their process is. Make sure they have good reviews online. Click here to get a rock removal quote from His Workmanship.

“Hi, my name is Mike and this is my 8th summer with His Workmanship. I’ve been good friends with the owner ever since our college days. Eric has been a good friend but an even better boss. He has given me many pay raises and end of the summer bonuses. He works with my schedule and gives me time off to rest. I cannot recommend His Workmanship enough.”
