View Full Version : any suggestions?

I have got a friend of the family that wants his front yard redone. The yard is 1568 sq/ft, has good ph balance, very lumpy and un-even and brown patches are everywhere. The problems with this job is that he has a sewer in the middle of the yard and Funk has already applied pre-emerge w/first application. I have some thoughts, but I was wondering what everyone else would do and charge?

A agree, don't make it a habit to work for family.

Step 1:
Communicate to him that your friendship is FAR more important to you than the business.

Step 2:
If he still wants to go forward (and agrees NOT to let any job jeopordize your friendship) I'd suggest the following:

Step 3:
Kill the existing grass
Bring in some topsoil to grade
Slit-seed in 3rd generation Kentucky Bluegrass blend.
Follow-up with fertilizer and watering instructions.

I would spray it, til it,level it, sod it, rool it and walk away.
