I wouldn't drive across a septic or leach field even if someone asked me. ;)
Back up right from the street
It appears there is a ditch along the road. You can get across them if they aren't too big and you have enough blocks.

My husband's not thrilled with anyone driving a heavy truck up the lawn. So unless there's someone out there who has a system that can get it in there from the driveway, looks like we're back to shoveling it from the garage ourselves or going with bagged.

Something to note here, you can take the coal off the truck at a right angle so you would only have to back up so the back of the truck was about even with deck.Truck would probably have to be all the way up in the air. Be plenty of pitch with nut or pea, the rice might be close.

I get 7 ton delivered at a time, truck needs to park on steep bank in yard to unload. I just tell him not to show up after rain for 2 days, no issues.. Note there is no septic/drain off that he drives over, just yard :D

As long as the nose of the truck is pointed downhill as it would be in this situation that isn't a problem.If it's pointed up the hill you can flip it over backwards. The back axle also has to be level, even if it's little crooked taking it up in the air isn't much of an issue but when you start emptying it out the coal comes off the higher side and you'll have 1/3 of the truck full on the lower side which isn't a good thing becsue it's already leaning that way.

I've got someone coming Tuesday who thinks they can do this. Wish me luck! Or should I say wish him luck? LOL Looking forward to NOT hand shoveling 3 tons of coal this year. Hope this works out.
