    Alot of people that are new to the industry on these forums, and probably alot of stupid questions being asked, probably by me daily but it does get to be annoying when alot of the season veterans get upset by the questions. IF YOUR UPSET BY THE QUESTIONS BEING ASKED DON'T RESPOND! There's plenty of forum to go around for everybody!

    gravel 12 yds , topsoil 160 yds, no formula 29 yrs of doing it and don't waste your money trying to cover the lot with top soil work the dirt you have. The lawn will be better growing in native soil and you can sell the top-soil for beds.

    actual length in feet X actual width in feet X desired depth in feet = required cubic feet

    Desired depth in feet = desired depth in inches / 12

    required cubic feet / 27 = required cubic yards

    Scraper...I;m with you on only adding 1 to 1.5 inches to previously mulched properties....makes me nuts when I see companies piling unnecesary mulch in beds just to jack up their revenue. Highly unprofessional imho.

    Most property's need only a "refreshment" of mulch, not a total reinstall

    right, besides the crying space is already taken up by the long standing members who whine like little girls about being forced to read through questions that are frequently asked.

    Charlies,

    I thought I told you quit whining. Guys like Dan, Gary, Scraper, Chevyman and myself don't want to hear your dumb questions. Go to newbiescrublowballerlawns.com or something and waste their time with your silly questions.
