    as far as figuring your depth, just try and take an average. if you have 1-10" variance, just average it all at 5". unless of course most of it is at 10 and only a little at 1" then maybe ave. at 7" takes a little guesstamating, but, its just dirt, to you can grade it all out. sounds like you have nice, uh, relaxing, weekend ahead of you. LOL! hope you have some nice young friends and family to help out /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
