Seed Lawn Pricing ?

What is the going rate to install a seed lawn for approx. 7000 sq ft.. Install icludes removing dead lawn, amending soil (about 80 yds. loam), grading, fert and seed. Do you guys price by the sq ft or by the job. How many days for a two man crew for this job. Thanks

We price by the square foot. Our rate is $2.78 per sq ft to finish grade, seed, fert, and straw mulch. Probably a two day job for two people.

Does the straw mulch just desintegrate or must you go back to rake it up?

Where in Mass are you? I just bid a similar job at $6500.00. I guess I need to adjust my prices.

With out hourly or square feet pricing per # is profitable.

Straw mulch will degrade / disappear as the grass grows up through it. Or if you're unlucky you get 30 mph wind the day after it's put down and it all blows away.
