This is about a 1 Acre lots that was clear cut (timber) about 2 years ago. All the tree tops and limbs were still laying on the lot. Had about 50 stumps and some were large. Had 3 large mounds of dirt that I worked down.

The lot was just like the lot to the left/behind my stump grinder.

I was bidding against a guy with a dozer and won the bid at a higher price.
The customer was concerned about a pile of root balls and tree tops being left on the property by the dozer guy.

I told him I would grind the stumps, burn the tops and cut the overgrowth by hand and level out the mounds of dirt so he could maintain it with a bushhog.

Got the bid and the more I cut the more excited the customer got and before all the chips fell...he wanted a finish grade ready to seed.

This is the completed job finished yesterday afternoon.

Looks nice. How long did that take?

If the guy with the dozer came in, i'm sure he would have popped the stumps out rather than grind 6" below the surface and every year as the stumps rot, there will be sinkholes there year after year.

Krois,
I've seen o-so-n-so's work.Believe me,he didn't just grind the stumps to a 6 inch depth and he didn't leave any roots either.He's a pretty big boy and can swing an axe with the best of them.He knows what he's doing as he's been stump grinding for 10 years.
o-so-n-so,
Great work as usual.That looks like a huge job.I want to know how many snakes you ran out of there? :D

Looks like a nice piece of property. What are their plans with all that wide open space?

This job took about 4 days in total time. I was dealing with a rainy time when trying to do this job and had to hit and miss my scheduled work days.

Nope...will not be any sink holes. You have been given bad info...young man. :D

I managed not to see a single snake while doing this job. Very unusual for my area.

This homeowner bought this property to keep someone from building next to him. His plans are to sow seed and to keep it mowed with a bushhog.

The grading was done with a boxblade, then tilled and finished with a landscape rake.

Property is in cullman city.

thanks to all for the comments......
