Id be interested in knowing whether $1500 is a reasonable price for the following work by a couple of guys just out of college who have recently started a rock cleaning and light landscaping business. I have a wide area on the backyard side of my house between the side fence and the house which is done in small cobble. A brand new stamped concrete walkway winds through it. The rocked areas on both sides of the walkway are about 6 at the widest and tapering down to 3 at the narrowest and 50 long on both sides. The rocked areas probably total about 500-600 sq. ft. - tops. They will do the following work: ---Install about 50 of French drain down the fence line (I supply the materials). Soil is clay. ---Remove rock and clean it using a machine theyve invented/patented (dry cleaning, not wet). ---Remove existing landscape fabric. ---Level out the surface, including filling in 4 wide trenches along the walkway used for the concrete forms. ---Lay new landscape fabric. There are two small ornamental trees, 4 small bushes (2' x 2') and about 8 very small daylilies to work around. Also an AC unit. They supply the fabric. ---Respread the cleaned rock. There is also another area of about 100 sq. ft. which is included in the price which is directly adjacent (separated by fence) but on the front yard side of the house. There are three lilac bushes there. Thanks so very much for your thoughts!!
