    I need some help to price a small project. I need to cut a pathway from the driveway to the front step. It needs to be 2.5 feet wide, then 25 feet one way and 13 the other. I was wondering how i go about pricing this and what would a good price be.

    Thanks

    sorry about that. Yes material needs to be removed and it needs to be about 5 inches deep.

    well if it were me i would price it at

    $500

    figure $200 for skid
    $200 for time
    $100 to haul away

    Thats also a lower end of price. If they have money you can go another $100
