Initial Rototilling Service :
Removal of the Old Lawn or Weeds, Pick Axing the Soil (6–8)” deep so that we know the Rototiller is getting in there 6–8 inches deep as well, just to bust up the soil and get it Aerated $0.67 per square foot area.

Composting :

Pick up and deliver enough Composted Manure for a 3″ layer all around $0.30 per square foot of area on average.
Secondary Tilling :
Spread the Compost all around for a 3” layer and then with the Rototiller machine we Rototill again and we Mix the Compost into the soil 6″–8″ deep, $0.33/square foot.

For a total of only $1.30 per square foot to prep the soil. Properly amending it and Aerating it and making it more drought tolerant.
You can at this point decide if you want to grow grass from Seed or from Sod. We will spread the Seed or lay the Sod. Seeding is about 10% of the cost of Sod, or the Sod can be purchased at any number of places but we like Pacific Sod for their quality and service as well as the fact that Pacific Sod has just never let us down or our customers.

Or maybe what you were wanting was a Flower Garden or Vegetable Garden?. Prepping the soil is the same process and equally as important in all cases.

  • Sprinkler Repair : We can Repair what is broken ( @ $75.00 an hour for labor, plus the cost of parts that may be needed) Replacement sprinkler heads are $10.00 each, a new Valve is $85.00 each, a new timer is $160.00, broken PVC and fittings are like $1.00 each, etc.
