    I qualify this because I have to seed when I am done so thats why I am in the lawn area.

    How much would you have to get to take down a 24 foot pool, remove 4 yards of 2" washed stone (river rock), remove 10-8' landscape timbers (4 x 4), grade the yard to the back in the 28' circle, remove about 2 yards of sand, bring in about 4 yards of black dirt and then seed the whole circle. On top of that you get to keep all the materials and the pool with all the things to run it. (a $3500.00 pool with 17 years left on the warranty).

    I figure it is gonna take me about 12 hours total with me working to do it all once the pool is thawed.

    You really don't have to answer but you wouldn't believe what I will make if I can do this in the next 2 weeks or so. I am not even gonna tell.

    Nothing because that pool isn't going to be thawed and the area dry enough in 2 weeks.

    I did a job like that 10 years ago (don't remember what I charged) But I took the pool and gave it to my parents. I dug a whole 2ft and sunk the pool half in-ground and put a deck on it. My kids love going there to swim (they live down the street from us). The best part is I don't have to maintain the pool. After-all, I gave it to them and installed it. I always promised my mom I would buy her pool :).

    Here's a picture with my son. This picture was taken before we repainted it a couple of years ago. It was also before we opened it for the year, that is why the ladder is not installed. It was just treated and the solo cover was on though.
