When you're moving large rocks on your property, it's often much easier to first break apart the rocks, making them much less difficult to move. However, breaking up large rocks requires caution, as injuries may occur if the wrong tools and techniques are employed.
To begin, grab a piece of chalk. Use the chalk to draw a line where you want to split the rock. Make sure the chalk line is very easily visible; you might want to reach into your kid's playroom and pick out a bright pastel.
Put on some goggles or protective glasses; if you wear eyeglasses, you should still don an extra pair. Put on protective gloves as well, as the chips from the rock can easily cut and scar your hands. With your stone splitting wedge, hammer down along the chalk line. Hammer them all in at a steady rate, hitting each the same number of times, which will cause more naturally breaking and lead to a move even split.
As the rock starts to break, add more stone splitting wedges to the chalk line. Don't worry if it takes you a few tries to get a hand of the stone splitting wedges. It may appear as though you've done little to break the rock, but you may be unwittingly softening it up. Keep up with your hammering and you'll soon break the rock.
When you do, step back quickly but controllably so that the rock doesn't fall on your feet. Once the broken rock has settled, you can repeat the steps above to break it into more pieces or just transport it now!
