We haul some soil away, since leaving it would mean having a 3 foot high pile of dirt in the lawn. We do leave the trench about 6-12 inches high to allow for some settling. Once the trench has settled, the homeowner can top it off with good topsoil and reseed the trench. The plywood protects the lawn from the soil, and helps provides a clean job site and easy cleanup for our crew.
