I am doing a proposal for a large historic estate that has had everything restored except the lawn. The front will go to bare dirt and the back will be aerified and slit seeded. The front is about an acre and will receive the absolute best care in the process including applying corrective nutrients according to soil test which will be tilled into the ground with the organic matter left over from the roundup application. The seed will be a combination of two different bluegrass mixtures and hydroseeded along with bio-stimulants and liquid calcium after being pre-soaked. The seedbed will be worked until it is a smooth and level as a golf tee. No expense will be overlooked to produce the finest lawn possible. What would you charge to do all this to the front lawn and slit seed and aerify another acre in the back?
