    Im kinda new to the landscaping side of lawn work, I have mainly stuck to mowing, aerating, etc. My customers just had a regular inground pool installed and now they want me to come in and lay rock 3 feet out from the pool, all the way around. Im going to install the weed barrier of course and then lay the rock. What would a typical bid be for this job? I dont know the exact feet or anything but it is a standard pool. Can anyone give me a ballpark price for this install? Thanks

    The rock is going to be the small multicolor... As for the pool size, I havent measured it yet but I would guess it to prolly be 15x50/60, not exactly sure

    you will definitely have to get measurements first to determine pricing. How many tons? How long? etc.
