Just curious as to what the consensus is for the price per yd or say 12 yds of topsoil raked in?

what are you talking about? be more specific, are you talking about top dressing? in gardens? most prices are based per hourly rate of the individual company. generally between $30 and $50

My minimum rate is $70/yd. delivered and spread, but that would go up if there is not access to the site for my trailer and I would have to wheel barrow it all in. For that much dirt I would rent a Dingo if you can't dump on site.

My price would be $60.00 a yard by wheel barrow more if i need a loader of sorts.

Our topsoil is $ 22.00 per yard, double screened and spreads like sand. A minimum delivery charge of $ 30.00 applies for orders up to 4 tons.5-8 tons is a $ 50.00 delivery charge, and 10 tons is 250.00 delivered and dumped within 5 miles. Dumped and spread it is $ 85.00 per yard.

I dont know but it is a lot heavier than mulch, I know that!!!!!!

Wow, people are actually paying $720 - $1,020 to have 12 yards of topsoil delivered and spread?

I'm curious, how long does it take you? I had 12 yards delivered and spread it with a rented tractor in about 3 hours last Friday. No access problems at all, 5' loader bucket on the tractor which made things go pretty fast.

It wasn't pretty (first time on a tractor) but it was spread out.

If you have customers paying that, great! More power to you, I'm jealous. :)

If the conditions are right, less than two hours with a 763 Bobcat, finish raked with a Harley rake for about a half hour , and ready to hydroseed.
