What are you ripping the grass out with? A Sod Cutter or by pitch fork?

Seth, I just did a similar job. It was only 450 sqft, but I brought in 6 yds of topsoil cuz I removed a bunch of junk soil. Took me about 10 hours by myself, and I got $900 for the job. I used a roto-tiller to loosen all the old stuff and shoveled it into wheelbarrows which were dumped on site. Hope this helps a little.

thanks zach.....was that 900 for whole job or your cut?

$900 was the whole job. I pocketed $650 for 10 hours worth of work. $65 an hour is pretty good for me.
