    I think that you will be creating an enormous amount of work for yourself and I would be dubious that it will work anyway. I've sieved more soil than I ever care to remember. The problems are myriad: - The chances are that you will find lots of rocks/gravel and other things that will make it a much longer and difficult process. - If the soil is not completely dry then sieving damp soil will end in tears i.e. it just won't work.

It will also mean that the expensive...
