I had someone come out to give me an estimate to overseed yard.

20,000 ft2 @ $149 per 1,000 ft2 = $2,980.00.

Property is very flat with two trees (ornamental pears) to go around.

I thanked him for his time and threw the esitmate away.

This is an outragous price .....isn't it?

Sounds high to me, I recently done a 20,000 sq ft overseed that had a fair stand of grass on it. I used 100 pounds of seed and 100 pounds of starter fert, and 80 pounds of lime. The grass is coming up very nice now and I only had about 150 dollars in supplies. I dont remember exactly how many hours time I had in the job, 3-4 at the most and that was to aerate, fert and seed.

We charge about $100 per 100 sq ft. Yours would have been about $2000

I was expecting between $300 and $500.

Yes it was just overseeding (with a power seeder), no areation or anything else.

Wow 3000.

I paid $135 for 5000 sq. feet, flat rectangular lot. 2 little trees.

He also cut all my crazy weed and bagged.

$135 includes aeration, overseed and lime.
