Not exactly sure what I charged... usually charge by the hour and not the job. If I do a bed renovation, I do supply the plants and usually choose them myself. The machine is probably the Dingo you're talking about.

The end result looks great, the Dingo does it track up the lawn and if so how do you go about getting the ruts out of the lawn, its gotta be pretty heavy I imagine.

Thanks and surprisingly the dingo has relatively low ground pressure, I just put down plywood on grass in areas where I'll be turning it a lot. Just topsoil and seed and mushroom manure over the ruts and you're good to go.

Good to know I'll keep it in mind if I need to quick patch an area. I'm sure its more cost effective than EZ seed by Scott's.

Moved into a new house last week and I'm slowly getting my shop set up... an oddly set up 3 car garage.

Thanks guys, that is a wood burning stove as far as I can tell... it has a wire plug on it though so I'm a little baffled. The man door goes out to the lawn!

From doing some more research, it's actually a garbage incinerator... kinda useless to me but at least the chimney is there for a wood burning stove.
