You may wish to consider instead of hiring a "company" with all the overhead that this entails to hiring a few strong guys off of craigslist, and buying a GOOD garden cart to help make it happen (and to keep your lawn intact - big pneumatic wheels are key).


We used to have 1.5 acres several houses ago - in NJ - and did a lot of landscaping. I made sure to have all the good tools, gloves, and garden carts and hired strong young backs to help me with the really heavy lifting, as it were. I never did any landscape rock this way but I did get 35 yards of mulch installed (two BIG truckloads) for a total labor cost of $300, plus all the iced tea and pizza they could consume.


To their credit, they did it all on a blistering hot day in July! We're talking 95, no shade and high humidity ...
