Hi all. I am in lower CT. I am debating to do a Hydroseed Job or Hay and seed. The area is almost to big to hay and seed! The area in question is roughly 80' x 130'. I do not know much about Hydroseeding so let me get your thoughts! Yes there is a sprinkler system.

should cost between 400 and 800 dollars, for hydroseed. Depends on time required for soil preparation. Be sure to get high-quality seed. Ask to get a copy of seed label.

area in question is roughly 80' x 130'--By my math, that's 10, 400 square feet. Using a small tractor, and a slice areator /seeder, at a high rate, I would charge only about $300. With 10 bales of straw, which is what you should be using( less weed seeds), and the labor to hand shake it out, you are talking about $5-600range, total. One man can knock that out in an afternoon! Keep looking you will find somebody in that price range.:walking:

I just saw this thread, but if you ever need any hydroseeding work, don't hesitate to call me. We do a lot of work down state.
