I have a job to bid that consists of a 25' by 100' slope that the customer wants to plant in monkey grass. How do I figue the amount of monkey grass and time to do it? Thanks!!

2,500 sq ft:

planted on 1 ft cener will be 2500 plants.

on 10" center - 3570

on15" center - 1603

Heres the formula.....

area in sq ft X spacing multiplier = # of plants needed.

Spacing multipliers are:
4"- 9
6"- 4
8"-2.28
10"-1.44
12"-1
15"-.64
18"-.44
24"-.24
36"-.11

Thanks very much for your VERY fast response! That formula will help me alot now as well as in the future!! Any ideas on how long it will take to plant 2500 4" plants on a hillside? THANKS!!!:)

I'm thinkin 1-2 minutes per plant and then add on travel and load time as well as mulch. Sorry so long for this reply, power outage .
