THANKS TO ALL WHO HAVE HELPED ME OUT SO FAR.

HOTSHOT--I don't really know why they are opposed to hydroseeding, but if I find out more, I will let you know.


CLC-You mentioned that your bid for the turnkey job was .021/psf. How much of that would you apply to the dirt work, if you break down the job.

ANYONE ELSE HAVE MORE INPUT? thanks

I didn't look at my figures, but I would say .05-.06 per sq. ft. Remember this does not include laser leveling, but only redoing what is already there. Filling in the holes.

I estimated 10 hours of blade work, with a 8' blade. If that helps.

CLC-
Thanks for the info. What do you think you would charge for laser level finish grade (PSF price). Top soil would be grade to +/- about 1/2 inch by another contractor. Then we would come in after. It would be the equivalent of about 3 fields in area.
Thanks again

ANYONE ELSE HAVE AN OPINION?

No, I haven't gotten the specs yet. Waiting patiently. And I hope they will be receptive to other products and methods. I'll report as soon as I know the specs.
Thanks for the reply.

Flexterra can be sprayed for anywhere from .08-.12 a sqft. but it will hold soil together for up to 12 months. which is a huge thing when your talking about lazer grading the field to make it perfect.. wont do much good if it gets erosion from rain...

It sounds like they want it to be perfect, so push them on that..

If they are even slightly interested in it, i would help you out on selling the Flexterra idea,, of course id like the option to spray it if they go with you....
