Had a potential customer call me for a quote. I guess from what he told me, he spent a lot of money and time on his back yard to make it look like the pics.. Needless to say he gave up, and wants me to do it for him. I sub a grader for $200 3 men 8 hours to roll, rake, seed, an straw $1200 $300 for misc. materials total $1700 Hows the price look? Might have to bring in top soil, but will try to grade it without first without doing that. He really doesn't have anywhere to get a big truck in for 15-20 yards at a time. Will have to bring in 7 yards at a time. The top soil thing came up since he has mulch chips everywhere for some reason mixed in with the existing soil. Is this really a problem? Can I just grade it and leaves the chips?
