I used three approaches for this job to get the dirt managed. First approach was a dumpster. Dumpster guys don’t like dirt and rock loaded in their cans, so you either have to pay extra for it, use a smaller box, or they won’t take the job. The sec- ond approach, which I liked best, was that a friend with a dump truck did me a solid and getting rid of that load was cheap. Third approach was my utility trailer and a land-reclamation site in my town (they’re filling in a quarry). This was the cheapest ( 50 bucks per load I think) but also the most work, because I then had to shov- el the dirt back off the trailer, making that the fourth and final time I handled it.

It connects end-to-end so you can make a continuous tube around You can find perforated drain pipe at a “big box” home-improvement store, although the pipe used in this project came from a masonry supply house.
