    Yes, that was live, green grass, thats why that much grass/sod to take off. It will not be close to that when its done because it will all be sprayed and left to sit 2-3 weeks first. That makes a huge difference over trying to remove the grass/sod while alive and green. As I said, I did a similar size patch at home that WAS sprayed and left almost 3 weeks and there is nothing to have to haul off.

    Well, I got the project finished a couple weeks ago. I started on Saturday, August 16th. That weekend was nice and dry and I got a good start, then the rains came, and came, and came some more. When the weather allowed, I took full advantage and finally got it done Thursday, August 28th. I would of had it done Weds, but had to wait for a loader and dump truck to remove the pile of grass/sod/rocks thursday morning. Once it was gone, I finished the small area where the pile was. They took 3 full dump trucks full away. It did turn out good. Overall it took me about 41 hours from start to finish. This is a 2 acre yard, and I am posting a few pictures of it finished.

    This is through photobucket... hope it works Renovation?sort=3&page=1
