    I haven't gotten much help in the Commercial landscaping forum so I thought I'd try here too. Maybe some of you guys can help.
    Okay, I need to repair a lawn for a neighbor that was badly damaged by insects, mostly grub. The area used to have real nice grass but all of a sudden this year the skunks just started tearing everthing up and now it doesn't look so good. The area is 750 sq. ft. I would also like to raise an area that gets some flooding with a yard of topsoil and reseed. First of all what would you guys suggest to do about repairng the lawn and how much would you charge for a job like this. I was thinking of applying some insect control fertilizer now and rolling it with a lawn roller and then throwing some seed on top? Is this a good method? Please let me know how you guys do it. Oh and what kind of fertilizer is good for insect control?
