Well Hometown, if a nice rototiller is what you have to work with, and since it is only 3000 feet, work with that.

Some guys might like to go through and spray a herbicide first. Many would not. If you are only using the tiller I would try to make two passes a few days apart. Level it off as well as you can which can be done with anything from a hand rake up and hydro seed. If you did use a herbicide you should wait at least two weeks, preferably three before you hydro seed. The herbicide can effect the germination of your lawn seed.

to prepare for seed i charge .15 per square foot

thats sod cutting and raking out the area-- more if loam is needed
