So I have the number in my head. I wanted to see if I am way high, way low or about right. I haven't seen this in person yet so this is just a "ballpark number" I am giving this person. If it's within their range then I will go out in person and give an estimate. It's about a 30-40 minute drive and I don't want to waste the time and gas if they are just kicking tires. I gave a number to the person for a lawn install. Removing straw, tilling, getting out rocks, hand grading, seed fert lime, cover with organic material. They said the number I gave wasn't within their budget. They could seed fert lime and cover. Now they want a price from me to till, clean out rocks and rake even. It's a new construction so it's obviously rock hard and we haven't had rain in a while. I don't want to tie up any money in a dingo rental. I own a Honda FRC 800 tiller which will do the job. Was planning on hand grading using my wide grading rake. Rake any rocks into piles, shovel into a wheelbarrow and dump in wood line. Before that I was going to blow/rake all the straw into the wood line too. I'm aware that the job could be easier with a dingo etc. But, I could use some extra money for a job I wasn't anticipating and don't want to be too high. Already was told the lawn install number was out of budget. Like I said, I have a number I am going to tell him and am not asking to be told what to charge. I'm just curious to see what others would charge for what I just explained I am planning to do. Attached are some pics. You can see the edge of the house roof in the first one. Going off of that and what looked to be a maybe 7 gallon crepe myrtle, I'm guessing 5000-6000 sq ft roughly unless you think I'm totally off. Like I said, I'd measure in person before giving a hard number.
