In our contract there is a provisional sum of $2,000 for the removal of excess soil. I've asked that this be removed as I'd like to keep the soil and use it at a later time (also a tip I got from another DFH customer).
But I've been told that it can't be taken out because "it will be a lot of soil that comes out so it can only be determined onsite if there is any room to leave it on site but generally the standard size blocks do not have enough room."
Forgive my ignorance but is this usual practice or a money spinner? $2,000 seems a lot to me for this service.
