    Not the best pic from a camara phone but a truck missed the drive in the winter and rutted up the turf. This is not a customer of mine but was called to quote the job. It took approx 1 hr from arriving to leaving and materials consister of 10 pds of seed and 4 bales of straw and approx 5 pds of starter fert. Simple job so what would you have charged? for 1 hr of your time to fix these ruts.

    Not sure.............. I got paid, but what would you have charged for an hr. work with only the materials I listed, NO top-soil. Same state so prices should be close.

    I must be cheap. I'd probably charge about $200-$250 if wasn't too far from the house.
