    I had a guy call and ask me for a quote to fix up his lawn. After looking at his property, the whole yard needs to have new top soil raked in and then re-seeded. His property is 16000 sq. feet. My price on top soil around here is $24 cu yard. Any help on this price would be greatly appreciated. I would have 3 guys, including myself and I pay them $10/hour. I do not have much experience with spreading top soil, so I'm not sure how long this should take for this yard. Thanks for the help!

    ask yourself:
    How many yards?

    Can you do it in a day?

    Problems that are unforeseen?

    Rent a loader?

    Time it takes to grade?

    Price may vary on location, lets say a days work of that nature you shoud bring home profit $400-800
