I am currently planning on renovating a two of my customers lawns. I plan on excavating the existing lawn with a john deere compact backhoe. The lawns are around and 2,500 and 5,000 square feet. I know I can bang out the excavation pretty quickly. I was thinking and hoping that I can get the job done in an 8 hour day with a three man crew. Can this be done. I am also probably renting a dump truck from a guy I know so I would load everything on the dump and haul it away. The dump is at my town and two of my part timers work there so the dumping is free. I figure I will be on the backhoe and then have my guys follow behind me with the sod. So can I excavate and install 5,000 square feet of sod in 8 hours with three guys?
