Well we got our first job today. We are digging up about 18in of dirt from both sides of the drive way and laying down white gravel....

What are the going rates for something like that?...

It is about 375ft


and flaring out the ends to match the road and flower beds...

any help would be great

It depends on what you have for equipment, this job would take us about three hours @ 90.00 hr plus $90.00 in transportation costs. (one of our small loaders with a backhoe and landscaping bucket attached)
