I got the opportunity to rent a tractor and spread some dirt on the property.  Since I had the dirt delivered right where I needed it for the sake of efficiency, both the source pile and the destination are in the same frame.

We had the dirt delivered right where we needed it so the source pile and the destination is in the same frame.  We were just using the tractor to spread the dirt to level the land. You can see it was defintely moved and spread using that beautiful tractor!!

Note: Sorry Kristi, the BB requires " it must appear that at least five scoops was moved "  The key word is "scoop" But good video.

I have a huge pile of arborist chips and the spot that needs the chips is about 100' away.  I have a garden tractor with a front push blade, think snow plow. Will using this tool 'count'?

I'm in the process of building my first hugelkultur bed, and I didn't want to bury the little bit of top soil I've been trying to cultivate. First I scraped the top soil off, then I added the trees, and finally I covered the trees with some pretty sandy dirt that's easy to scoop. I don't know enough about hugelkultur beds to know if this is a mistake, but I've been working hard to try and develop some decent soil over the last few years, and dirt is cheap and easy to get for filler.

I tried to make a video, but I'm not very good at holding my phone and keeping the bucket angle right.
