Default Grass and Weed removal

Hi Guys,

A customer wants me to remove grass and weeds from an area of approximately 2800 sq. ft and install landscape fabric as he wants to have that part of the yard with gravel only. Can you give me an estimated labor costs for this?

Normally I would spray the grass to kill the weeds then remove grass and weeds, spray again then install the fabric.

Let me know your thoughts.

Its not a huge area so I have my guys spray it to kill all weeds and grass then use shovels to dig up the grass and dispose of it.

Why not use a tiller and rake out all the grass after?

I would think that method along with fabric over it would be quick and effective.

Let us know how the job goes. How long it took. Also if you had one or did you need to rent a tiller to perform and how did that tiller function for you.
