I just got a call from my brothers best friend. He wants to rip up his lawn and resod it. He bought the house about a year ago and the previous owners let the lawn go to hell for a long long time. He has about 1/8-1/4 acre of lawn (I have only been there once at night) and I am just trying to rough estimate the price in my head. But, what is the easiest way to rid the old "turf"? I was thinking of renting a sod cutter but at 18" wide, it would take forever to do. So then I was thinking of just using a skid and and just scrape up the grass leaving the dirt only. I realize I may have to harley rake it but that wouldnt be an issue. I have both sod cutter experiance and plenty of skidder experiance, its just that this isnt what I designed my company to but have no problem doing things like this for good friends. So.....Sod cutter or skid? What do you think?
