2 acres isnt bad i bid on a 60 acre airport runway, was the low bid by 125.00$ but they decided to try and do it themselves. I think i figured it out to be about 3,500 $. 2 acres of flat ground with a 3 point over seeder would be about 800 $ With a walk behind i would charge 1200 $.

Are you planning on aerating before seeding?

You need 480 lbs of seed. Cost=$525 w/ tax
8 bags of starter fertilizer. Cost=$70
Labor to put seed and fert.****$???? Your rate.
