    Right now the grade is towards the house on three sides.

    I have figured out I need 5 yards of soil and 2 yards of 1-2" rock.
    The soil I can get dropped 30 feet away and the rock 60 feet away.
    I can only wheel barrow the rock.

    I also need 3 yards of soil 50 feet away where I can only wheel barrow.

    Should I hire a Bobcat to move the 5 yards of soil?
    How much time should I allow to wheel barrow
    5 yards soil 30 feet?
    2 yards rock 60 feet?
    3 yards soil 50 feet?

    How frequently should I pack the soil with a water drum?
    every inch?

    Thankx for your help

    If you can get the bobcat cheap i would use it to load 3 wheelbarrows and be done before lunch
