  • how much to charge?

    Heya, a guy called me because he as a job for me to do. He wants me to demp 50 bags of soil on his land to level it. He also wants me to put grass seeds on his land. He has a 10000ft square land. I dont know how much to charge. I would do the whole work by myself on a rainy day since he wants the work to be done in the rain. He already has all that is needed to do the work. Any suggestion?

    Thank you...

    So that is 50 bags of 40lbs topsoil? Would it be better to have it just delivered and dumped, then you spread it out?

    What will you be using to level it? 10,000 sq ft is close to a 1/4 acre.

    He already has all that is needed to do the work.
    Meaning equipment or supplies? And what would this include?

    How much grass seed will you be using? A 50lb bag?

    How long are you thinking the job will take you?

        Seriously?


        Whatever you've decided on charging, it's not enough.

              It took around 4hours to complete the job. Overall did not make the maximum profit I could of made but, like Steve said: It was a great learning experience. It was the first big job I ever did seeing as I just started my landscaping bussiness.
