Hey guys, been reading here for a long time and need to ask my first question. We are a gardening/design company and branching into some lawn stuff this year. I'm doing an estimate and was hoping just for some general feedback. Customer wants the lawn taken up and sod put down. It's rather bumpy and the grass looks okay right now (as in it will grow) and she just wants it leveled and made more 'kid friendly'. We intend to use the till it and rake it method, then add some topsoil to aid in leveling and some compost, till in the compost, starter fert and then sod. I know some will say use a sod cutter and we've gone back and forth on that and decided on the tilling route - seems way less hassle in getting all that sod out of there and should work fine I presume. The yard is 2000sqf, it includes some leveling (not much of a grade), ripping out an old railroad tie garden bed and rebuilding the bed with stone. There is also a decent chunk of cleanup with some branches and general debris piled up. We figure, with a crew of 2: 1 day (or a bit less - maybe 5-6 hours): Clean up and removal of debris and dig out old bed 1 day (or maybe a bit more - maybe 8-10): Till (5-6 passes till its fluffy and sod is broken up) and rake out clumps, Level foundation for a garden shed, Build new garden bed (low drystack, filled with topsoil mix) 1 day: Spread and rake topsoil/compost, re-till it in, get out all the remaining clumps, level yard, rake and roll 1 day: spread fert, lay sod, finishing touches That's giving us 4 days, I'm leaning towards figuring we can actually do it in 3. But obviously I'm not sure, that's why I'm looking for help here. We are good on our estimates with garden work but this stuff is a bit now - we've laid sod and stuff but not really professional/paying attention to time. Thanks again for any advice, love this board and all the helpful folks on it.
