A pro at work.
Really nice job. Looks perfect! I was wondering, how long did it take you? I noticed you did the beds too. Also, looks like about 7 yards of soil??
I did the job myself. 14 man hours start to finish.
I used 40 yards of loam. The pile you see is just the edge of it.
Basically, I just scraped the old sod (if thats what you want to call it) and took it out of there (2 loads). Then spread out the mulch and loam (3-4") finish raked (by hand) and hydroseeded.
Job was priced around $2800.
Looks good. Hey you wanna come over to Ohio and hydroseed for $2800. I woulda at least charged $4k for that especially with that hillside needing some erosion control and capping. Possibly a blanket. Did you have to rent the machine or no? How cool is it over in MA. Over here nothing we are seeding will probably come in full until spring because it's getting colder every day. I gots 3 lawns we will b e seeding this week I'll try to post.
These pictures are from a couple weeks ago. It has already come in.
What reason do you have to justify $4k? $115 a man hour is not enough?
You must have a large overhead, even at 18 years old?
Own the Bobcat.
Not near steep enough to have to worry about erosion.
you didnt paint the garage too did you????
I think your price was right on, I did a lot of jobs like that on Cape Cod(mostly Barnstable). I think 4k is way overpriced for that job and even on Cape Cod you would be hard pressed to get that much.
What is loam running these days and where do you get it from? Over the bridge?
