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.
Communicate to him that your friendship is FAR more important to you than the business.
If he still wants to go forward (and agrees NOT to let any job jeopordize your friendship) I'd suggest the following:
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.
