Someone Had a Bright Idea...,

In many parts of the NYC metro area, landscapers have to pay to dump wood chips.
Therefore, in those areas, if they happen to find a homeowner that's looking for chips to use as mulch, they are only to happy to oblige, and for free.
A friend of mine was one of those homeowners.
The other day, she received about seven cubic yards, in a great big pile, in the middle of her driveway.

"Hmmmmm......"
"How do we move them to where they need to be?"
"Dave, can you come over, and please bring your garden cart?"

The cart holds about 6 1/2 cubic feet
That works out to about 29 cart loads.
Somehow one of us got the, "Load the cart and pull it [uphill] detail," and the other got to use the rake to spread them around.

We were sort of busy.
