The dirt wasn't way I like to get a final grade a good rain would do it justice

Then home owner came home and now they want some better top soil. I tried to talk them in good black dirt. The other 2 Landscapers said wasn't nothing wrong with the dirt But they was going seed it as it was no grading
and no swell cutting
This lawn is 23k sf.
One company bid said 14k with no grading what you see iswhat he was going seed and it was rough grade with a dozer
2nd Company bid was 18k sf and he said same thing what grade is there is the grade they going to have

To check it the square feet of the lawn I re walk it off and let home owner figure it up and doing that sold the job

Here is few pics of it
2 pics how I haul my stuff

After this one I moved my tiller to my 3rd lawn install tilled some but the Contactor is still working on the back deck so I didn't do much to much junk in the yard
This job is done now 5-20-14 Will see how long it takes to turn green
