First of all thank you for this very informative website. We are thinking to do about 1000 sq.ft backyard with flag stone. My question is:
What kind of tool/equipment do I need to remove the soil ? I read somewhere, at least I need to remove 4-5 inches thick of the soil/ground. For 1000 sq.ft, that will be a lot of soil.
Then where usually people dump this soil (that they removed) to ?
