My wife and I just bought our home and the previous owner had most of the back yard covered in wood chips. They were terrible and got tracked everywhere and hurt the kids' feet. You couldn't get to the yard without walking through them. So we thought we'd take them up and put down grass seed.
It turned out to be more of a job than we anticipated. The chips were over fabric that hid the eight inches or so of sand underneath, haha. So I've spent the evenings for the last couple of weeks shoveling chips and sand and replacing it with top soil.
I've had our F150 for about two months now, and this was our first "big" load of anything. You can see how the truck is weighed down by the probably 3k pounds of sand and gravel I scooped out of the back yard.
What you can't see is that those chips extend another 30 feet to the left, all the way under and around our deck.
You can see the pile starting to grow in the background.
Things mostly cleaned up and grass seed down.
Glad we were finished at this point. Truck wouldn't have held much more.
The bed cover is pretty useful for keeping the sand from blowing out.
This picture makes me assume the shocks and struts are original.
