    I bought a shed (10*12) at the fair and it's scheduled to be delivered on Monday . They use one of those mules to move it in place . Of course, mondaM is calling for rain now .

    Any of you guys ever had one delivered in wet conditions? They say it's cause minimal damage regardless of rain or shine but I find that hard to believe .

    It depends on your yard and how soft it gets when it rains I would think. Is there a lot of slope? Flat?

    It's pretty flat everywhere . Bit it does get soft. With winter xomico, I figure if will be soft/ wet more often than not . I have an aerobic system that sprays daily

    Worst case go spend some money on some plywood or 2X10's to lay down and drive along. I would probably do something like a 3/4 ply and just get two or three sheets ripped in half. It may be a little slow going but shifting the sheets around will keep from tearing up the yard and you can always use them for something else later if they are not tore up. It will be a lot easier than fixing the yard afterwards and then you don't have to rely on the delivery guy having something on the truck or getting stuck.

    You know grass grows right out of the ground right? It'll be fine. Just use a rake to push everything around after they're done. (a rake is a yard tool)

    I've got one of those John Deere rollers you fill up with water and pull behind your lawn tractor to smooth lawns out with if you want to use it. Oh wait just saw where you live at and I'm in Harrah. Sorry anyway you could probably rent one of those they work excellent.

    I have a 30 gallon steel drum I filled with water and hand rolled my front yard with it after I tilled the yard up and raked it pretty flat.

    I wonder how large that John Deer one is

    If I remember right it's 24"×48" I can go out to the building and see what it is if you want me to.
