Moving the topsoil from our new parcel

We purchased ~4 acres of land from our neighbor Gary as he was selling his farm to an Amish family, Dennis.  The parcel resolved a long time problem of our septic line, garden, orchard and fence line being on property not identified in the original survey of our house.  The parcel contained a pond and a pile of topsoil piled up when the pond was dug.  Part of my agreement with Gary was that he could use the topsoil for his son’s business.  I also requested that some of the topsoil be used to make our new parcel ‘mow-able’  by covering the rocks and reducing the slope from the road.


When I talked to the operator of the loader, he wasn’t made aware of the agreement.  Like other promises by Gary (removing large maple tree trunks and smoothing out around a drainage pond) this apparently was forgotten.  I think I caught them in time and some dirt has been left remaining, but it will be up to me to make alternative arrangements for getting it spread.
