    Are you hauling away the rocks or putting them elsewhere on the property?

    Why are you adding dirt? Why are you adding peat moss?

    Where and why, would you add peat moss and dirt?
    That will just help the weeds grows.

    The client did it that way and he wants it done the same way again. He wants peat moss on the left said of the wall to fill in gaps so that the dirt does not wash away.

    I have no clue not a hardscaper. I'm just doing as the client did before just making it fresh. I was just looking for a ballpark price point for soing it.

    Just do what they want. Good little project. Nothing to go wrong. I’d have just added more stone.
