    Go by the job.. dealing with a builder with a hourly rate will give you more headaches then you could believe when trying to collect..

    My base rates are for finish grading:

    1/4 acre @ $1500.00
    1/2 acre @ $2000.00
    1 acre @ $2500.00

    That is building the grade around the house, finish the yard with the harley rake, seed and straw. I may switch to hydroseeding once my current equipment is paid off.

    If there is extensive grading, back fill needed, or unforseen issues that are huge, the prices go up.

    That is in Martinsburg WV.
