Hand Backfilling Cost
Construction ITEM DESCRIPTION
Excavation unit cost for back-filling trenches, foundations, footings or other excavation work, using hand labor.
One cubic yard of soil or other fill materials.
Labor and Equipment Costs
We figure 1.2 hours of unskilled labor per cubic yards of soil replace. This figure assumes that the replacement materials are piled close to the hole. It includes compression with a power tamper.
Goldenseal calculates the foundation backfill volume. You can change the quantity if conditions are different.
Source of Construction Pricing
This pricing is based on job cost data from several projects done by Turtle Creek Construction. It's meant for fairly small volumes of backfilling-- usually around small additions, decks or porch work.
