    I received three quotes. They were all between .26 and .28 per sq. ft. Three years ago it was twice as much.

    I don't mind doing it by hand either, it's hard work but it's not rocket science. If you have a way of scooping the sand and putting in wheel barrow that's a big time saver.

    Did you call sandman?

    I would never pay that much to topdress.

    I lived in Alt for a while many years ago, Still have a brother and sister there.

    I have no clue where Winder is however.

    Hmmm... This thread just got my brain going. I really wanna level my yard.

    My total lawn area is 3-4k sq ft. That's about 5-6 yards of river sand right? Mulch Man isn't that far from me and has river sand for about $40 a yard.

    Or should I wait until next year... Decisions decisions.

    Can you irrigate? If so do now, if not, do first week or two of June 2013.

    Tyler is a little further east of Dallas than you are from ALT


    For 28 cents a sf I would drive 60 miles. I just would not want to drive out there to estimate and give proposals.

    How much sand are you putting down really? 1/4 inch

    Exactly...if you knew you could get every job it would be worth it. Although its more labor, I cannot see or imagine charging $280 per k and use a shovel...I do have an image to keep.
