I would like to know if anyone knows what it would cost to have a yard completly redone. What I would like to do is this, I would like to have my front yard completely dug up and tilled and leveled and then re-seeded (Not Sodded). My front yard is approximately 1/8 of 1 acre.

If anyone knows someone and has a cost please let me know.

Thanks in advance.

Kinda of depends on the part of the state you are in, the amount of rocks, clay, gravel etc that is there. How bad is it now, how much grading and or fill it needs, does it need top soil ($125+ tandem load) type of seed, do you want a cover grass i.e. rye annual, and a host of other things.

In short some ones going to have to come look at it to quote it, before you even get close to a price.

But if you ask me, I'd rent a compact tractor with a tiller and box blade and do it my self. Get a load of good loamy soil and spread after you till and grade, then spread the top soil and grade. I'd over seed it in annual rye to prevent erosion first and and seed it in Freedom III Kentucky Bluegrass cover with loose wheat straw and water.

DO NOT do this until fall, the root grow throughout the winter giving you a fuller richer lawn next spring and the plant as time to get established. do it in the spring or summer, plan on seeding it again.

Lots of landscape contractors in area are reducing prices as number of new homes being built is way down. Go to Louisville Home Builders Association Home Builders Association of Louisville for a list of contractors. Use the Member List:Associate Members: Keyword-Landscape
