Can't you put drainage in to avoid raising
the grade to solve your wet area ?

Does the $4.50 include installation and the price of sod?
god this sounds like a job I bidded on about 1-2 weeks ago, LOL 25 yards of dirt, homebuilt retaining wall falling down and needed to be replaced and the whole grade raised 3-4" LOL not behind Ballys on Airport is it? LOL

anyways $4.50 is if all I have to do is pick up the sod, rake the base and roll

well IIRC I was $22xx.xx for 22 yards of dirt, 12 man-hours of prep and a shake of #31 fescue. add another $1100 for sod and the homeowner was going to install a RR-tie wall himself to save the grand I wanted
