Today I called a guy to give my bid for his front lawn (which was totally demolished to put in the new septic). What he has now is a sand/ soil mix, which he wants covered with good loam and seeded. Okay, no prob. The area is about 60 X 54, and I decided to go with 2.5 inches of loam. This is 25 yards. Theres another area in the back that would need a yard or 2, and a small area on the side. I bid it at $1160, and he called me back a couple hours later and said that I didnt get it, because the other guy bid about 600 less! I thought I was bidding low, but the materials for this job would be about what this guy is charging! What would you folks bid at? By the way, a very easy area, easy access, no hills to move loam up, nothing bad at all.
