    what are you talking about? be more specific, are you talking about top dressing? in gardens? most prices are based per hourly rate of the individual company. generally between $30 and $50

    My minimum rate is $70/yd. delivered and spread, but that would go up if there is not access to the site for my trailer and I would have to wheel barrow it all in. For that much dirt I would rent a Dingo if you can't dump on site.

    Our topsoil is $ 22.00 per yard, double screened and spreads like sand. A minimum delivery charge of $ 30.00 applies for orders up to 4 tons.5-8 tons is a $ 50.00 delivery charge, and 10 tons is 250.00 delivered and dumped within 5 miles. Dumped and spread it is $ 85.00 per yard.

    Wow, people are actually paying $720 - $1,020 to have 12 yards of topsoil delivered and spread?

    I'm curious, how long does it take you? I had 12 yards delivered and spread it with a rented tractor in about 3 hours last Friday. No access problems at all, 5' loader bucket on the tractor which made things go pretty fast.

    It wasn't pretty (first time on a tractor) but it was spread out.

    If you have customers paying that, great! More power to you, I'm jealous. :)
