Overseeding ??

Ok Got a new lawn that I am picking up that is in need of some over seeding. Never had to do this so not really sure how to go about pricing and best methods for a successful over seed. Any help appreciated.

if its not too thin I like to double aerate and broadcast the seed. but if the lawn is really thin I aerate then slit seed 2 directions the broadcast the seed to eliminate the corn row effect. last but not least apply a starter fert not too high in N but high in P and K, I use 6-24-24

Our best results have been achieved with slit seeding.If you don't own a slit seeder , you probably can rent one easily.We charge by the 1000 square foot. Aerate first. If your not familiar with a slit seeder, run it over the turf at half seed rate diagonally then take the other half rate of seed and make a diagonal pass in the opposite direction.Then put down some good starter fert.

Price per K

What kind of price do you charge per 1000 sq ft. The yard is almost 12,000 sq ft. Thanks for the info so far
