I guess this would fall in the hardscaping category. It's not something that I do a lot of but I have resurfaced gravel driveways before. I'm sure you're all tired of the how much to charge threads but I have a reason for this one that i'll let you in on later. I have already priced it and gotten the job and will be doing it tomorrow. I'm putting in a crushed stone parking area that measures 10 x 50 feet so 5,000 square feet. I'll be taking out 4 inches of the existing sod and soil and disposing of it onsite. Then I'll be putting down 15 tons of 3/4 process stone (traprock/basalt) or crusher run as some call it. I've got a dump trailer and compact utility tractor. I figure I should be able to do it in a day, hopefully. It's about an hour drive though. I'm having the stone delivered. No fabric, base drainage stone or edging/curbing is going in, the customer and I discussed the pro's and con's and are skipping those item. The customer is paying for the stone and hauling themselves, about $275. So what's the approximatel value of the labor to dig out this area and put down the stone? I will compact it in 2 inch lifts with the front-end loader. Thanks in advance.
