I recently had the ground around my new house bulldozed for our future yard. We did not know that this property was so rocky. We have every size of rock that you can imagine. I have started my own large rock pile so that I can use these in the future around flower beds, etc., but my big dilema is "how do I get up all of the small rocks with out hiring an army to pick up rocks?"

Get a bow rake which has a dozen or so heavy teeth with inch or so gaps. You can scrape the rocks into a pile.

Bring in the Marines!
No, really, use the rock rake (as suggested above) and then maybe it would also be a good idea to have a few loads of nice topsoil brought in and spread before planting grass, shrubs, whatever. A good job for this spring!
