    I have some some small re-grading jobs before but nothing big, most of my work is mowing, mulch, and bushes. I am trying to figure out #1 the best way to go about this job and #2 how much to charge. I attached some pictures.

    In the first picture, from the left of the row of stones over to where the cable box is (just this side of the flower bed with the pines). The area is about 25' wide and 30-40 feet long.

    They want the ground to be level with the stones as it is now and then level out the rest. There is a large mound that you can see as well as some small swells by the cable utility box.

    What would be the best way to go about this job? I thought about renting a bob cat but I thought it would be over kill, especially for $200 a day. Would just a rototiller work to loosen up the mounds? I was planning on bringing in some top soil too. I figure it would take at least 5 yards and maybe up to 8.

    Any opinions would be great.

    would this job be a good one for a dingo?
