Hey guys. I thought I'd report on a job I just landed. One of my customers, as well as a good friend of my dad's, had quite a bit of dirt and debris removed from behind his house in the last week. I went to mow last night and noticed this change. He told me he had a guy with a backhoe come in and haul out some dirt to clean it up a bit. He said he was gonna lay sod eventually then I could mow it. I looked it over, was a pretty good sized area (don't know sq. footage) but big enough for a backhoe to get in there. Anyway, today while I was mowing, (usually thinking time for me ) I thought about prepping the area for sod becuase it was just roughly cut, still had mounds of dirt and needed some more dirt moved. I was thinking to myself "Landscape opportunity here" and I called him up to ask if there would be as possibility of me getting the soil ready to go for planting. He was suprised that I called and thought about him, since he was gonna hand rake it all. That would have taken forever. I told him I could bring out my tractor to level and roto-till the ground to get it ready for sod, since it's pretty hard and not ready for sod. I figure I could easily make $50, depending on how long it takes. I guess we'll see how long it takes, then figure out what it's going to be, unless he wants a bid upfront. Well, thought I'd report in!
