    yard, how much should I charge for a renovation?

    My plan is as follows:

    1. Roundup to kill all existing grass

    2. Power rake and remove dead grass

    3. 3 inch depth of top soil

    4. Seed (How many pounds of seed do you think?)

    5. Mushroom manure

    Replys are appreciated!

    read the mfg label for how much seed it needed per 1000sq ft. Is mushroom manure the same as mushroom compost? If so thats a good call. I use mushroom compost when planting usually for every 2 yards of top soil I mix in 1 yard Mushroom so a 50-50 mix. Gets really good results. However, I would recommend doing this. Kill the grass (Round up) then wait a few weeks, get a skid loader and harley rake and go over it. Other wise your going to need 21 yards of soil and another 21 yards of compost. This way you can do that, bring in about 20 yards of compost, dump it on the site, and then mix it all up with the harley rake. could easily be done in one day (after spraying that is). Id probably do that job for around 1700-2000 depending on seed quantity. I know its about 6lbs/k for overseeding not 100% sure on new seeding.
