    Level/grade 8,000 sf. (big backyard) some areas need 3-4" of topsoil.
    What would you charge. I have machines and a friend with a semi, to get me the material.

    Pics? Greatly depends on how bad it is ... obstacles? Trees?

    i wouldnt really call 8000sq feet big...i just graded up a yard last week that was 2 acres...formally a forest, the guy had the trees cut down and grinded so there was roots and stump holes all over and even that only took 8 hours on a dozer...maybe you have small equipment but figure the amount of dirt you need, the cost and then roughly 8 hours equipment time
