I have about 8 acres that was farmed for many years and I'm planning on building a house on the property in the spring. Currently, the land is very flat from front to back but wavy ( tire compaction) from side to side from years of farming. The soil is almost all gravel. My plan is to make my property nice and smooth and eventually plant grass.
I know a dozer would be the best tool for this project but I was thinking about buying a box blade and putting it to use. I don't have any experience with a box blade but I'm thinking I could learn as I go and I would be some good seat time. Am I crazy? How long would this probably take me?
