How to make slope grade away from house?
I read the article about the Toro. That would seem to work, but realize we have more to do than we would have had at the old Suburban house lot.
When the pond out front was built before we bought, the soil seems to have been deposited so that there is a lot of work to do.
We need to make a long low spot for drainage. Maybe a 200' long, then 3 to 7 foot wide low place.
My big question is first was I just seeing things when I saw the Bobcat on TV lower its bucket to catch 3" or so of turf and drive forward to cut a path? That is what we want to do. We would repeat to get what we need. Then, we also need to get the 6 " over 10' slope away from the house.
Then the next question is whether the Toro or other walk behind could cut the path?
