I DO NOT guarantee a slice overseed job in an existing lawn. Absolutely no way too tell what you think is a good germination rate vs. what a customer thinks.
If I seed bare ground I will ensure a good stand of grass tho.
So you charge $40-$50 depending upon aerating per 1K right? If a quarter acre is around 10K then why are you charging $275 when your previously stated rate is $40-$50 per thousand?
Do you include a starter fertilizer with the overseeding?
