A wowan wants a small 9x12 pool in her backyard filled with topsoil. MOst of it is full. But I think she needs about 2-4 pickup truck loads full as she wants it filled and then rounded at the top to have a mound to plant flowers and things on. How long should I figure it will take me to shuvel and wheel barrel each yard of topsoil ( the guy said a yard of black top soil is about 1800 lbs which is the most I should haul each load in a standard pick up, even though 2 yards;3600 lbs would fit). The distance between her small back yard and the street is only about 50 ft. BUt I'll have to shuvel it all out of my bed cause it's not tilt. I was thinking about an hour for each truck load ( this isn't counting picking it up, I'm adding an hour for that too). I was going to give her an estimate of $240-480 as I'm not sure how much I'll exactly need to do what she wants. It's 9x12 area and I need to make a mound starting at about 6 inches up to 3 foot in the center of dirt added. I'm scared to give her a set price for I could be WAY off in my estimation of how much dirt and time is needed to complete this although it's a very basic job.
