How to remove big rock on front lawn
Does any know how i can remove it? It's too big and heavy for me to move it myself. Do I need to call in a specialist to take it away?

Totally agree ... it sounds like a great idea until someone tries to move it. Then you realize it weighs like a ton (probably a lot more than that) or should that be a boulder. A couple of guys using muscle power isn't going to move it far. Think of your lawn.OttawaGardener wrote: ↑May 10th, 2017 4:55 pmI think you will have trouble getting someone to take it. Big rocks weigh many tons -- we had much smaller rocks delivered and installed for a water feature, and you can't simply put them on a pickup or trailer.
Basically, the rocks are free, the expense is in the delivery.

I'm surprised this hasn't been brought up by the follow the rules folks here. I would be careful. What if they injure themselves on your property trying to remove it? Make sure anybody that comes and takes it is fully licensed or insured to do so. That's why you should never let anybody into your home to buy stuff. Unless you or they have insurance for this.

Contact a company that sells these boulder? If they sell them, I am sure they can move them properly.

If I sell a piano to someone on Kijiji, I'm not letting Billy Bob and his buddy move it out of my house by themselves and into a pickup. I'd make sure they have a proper mover lined up who would be insured against damaging my property or themselves (since you'd be liable for injuries that occurred on your property, most likely). Same thing here. They'd have to line up proper movers, which would involve THEM calling around and arranging it. But they'd get the rock for free, at least.pinkdonut wrote: ↑May 11th, 2017 4:15 pmContact a company that sells these boulder? If they sell them, I am sure they can move them properly.
I wouldn't post it on kijiji....no DIYer would have the proper equipment to move a 10,000lbs rock.
Probably make a mess on your lawn and fail to move the rock in the end.
