Sounds like you are in the ballpark. I had a couple people come out and take a look at it. First was $1K, with me ordering the dirt seperately, and having someone else (at his recommendation) hydroseed after. Second was $1700 with dirt/seed/straw. I don't know how much dirt each one had planned on using.
Yikes. That'll never pass the wife-sniffer, especially in a house that she wants to move out of. I guess I'm just going to have to do it the best I can with what I have.
