RE: RE: was heavy sod, now concrete removal

Hmm- not sure where I'd put a berm here.  You have to understand that I live
in total suburbia- on less than a 1/5 of an acre- half of which the house
covers.  I thought I was being pretty creative building raised beds over a
concrete slab!  I don't think I've got a place for a berm.  One other
project I do want to do in spring it to dig out a "ramp" that the former
owner put in.  Basically they cemented flagstones to cover the side sloping
area of the yard.  Looks so-so, but it is slippery when damp and someone
(like me) is going to kill themself on it one day.  And besides, why have
cement when you can have plants instead!!  Not sure how we will get rid of
the stuff, but I'm willing to give it a try.  Anyone have any concrete
removal experience here?

Couldn't you use the sod to make berms?  That's what I've done w/ all the
sod I've lifted to make new beds.  Made a berm down the whole North property
line to divert all the runoff from that trashy auction next door.  Works
