Just picked up an account where this old lady payed some wanna be landscaper to install sod at her new house. He was payed a total of $3800, of that he was suppose to use 14 pallets of centipede, 2 tandem axles loads of topsoil, level the yard, and apparently he told her he would put down pesticide/weed-n-feed on the new sod (and no he's not liscensed). Well the yard looks like $hit, unlevel as can be, sod is dying off in places, big gaps in between pieces, etc. So I am now suppose to fix this mess. My original plan was to rent a skid steer or a frontend loader tractor and just scrap it all up and order a trash container. But since the sod is already dying off I am wondering if I could just use a 5 foot tiller and just go over it several times, this way I don't remove what little soil is there (oh and he didn't bring in the amount of dirt he was suppose to, maybe 3-4 yards at most). Does this sound like a feesible plan? I feel so bad for this lady and am trying to save her as much as possible. Any other recommendations are appreciated.
