Re: How to get a level lawn field loaded with rocks
There is a reason for all those rock fences in Europe, there is no way to get rid of the rock, they will always migrate to the surface. The best you can do is collect them as they do and remove them.
You could go to the time and expense of screening the top few inches of your soil, but the thing is, you will need to cart those rocks off or find a new home for them, you don't want to bury them back in your freshly cleaned soil. Still, whatever is below the point you stop your screening process will eventually work its way to the top as well. How quickly will depend on how active your soil is, the lighter/sandier it is, the faster those rocks will surface.
Cures? Not much you can do, either live with them or try to remove them. One thing to keep in mind if you start excavating, make sure to grade your ground so that you have natural drainage. It is also illegal in most places to redirect water from your property to neighboring properties, you can only redirect into natural/municipal systems.
