Just got a call from a customer, I've done work for in the past.They want a beach. They have a house with lakeside frontage. The lawn is two tiers, with the smaller tier along the water. <p>Haven't been to the site to measure yet. Just a brief conversation on the phone. I'm guessing the lake frontage is about 150 feet. The bottom tier of turf would be 150 X 20 feet.<p>What they want is the turf removed. And then have sand brought in to make a beach.<p>Thinking this might be over my head. I have concerns with erosion. Don't see how the sand will stay in place. The slope is slight maybe 5 to 10 degrees max. I just think the water would constantly wash the sand away.<p>Another problem, and it is a major one is access. The driveway is at the back of the house, while the lake is in front. One side of the house has chain link fence running from the road down to the lake. The other side is the only way to access the lake. And there it is roughly 6 feet wide. No way to get a truck down there. And I imagine it's going to take quite a few truck loads of sand. Not to mention getting equipment down there to remove turf, and grade.<p>I'm probably going to pass on this one, but I'm going to hate to. Looks like a lot of money on this job. Going to go and look at it next weekend and do some measuring and figuring.<p>Any ideas?
