overseeding pricing

hey guys, my first year offering overseeding....how do u guys price it out? Also what do you do for big yards 3/4 acre-1 acre. I rented a power seeder last year for my lawn and it about killed me to push it that much and my lawn is only 1/4 acre. Thanks for any advice

We charge a mininum of $150.00 for up to 3,000 sq ft. Each additional 1k is $55.00. Extra charges are applied based on difficulty of lawn (slopes, obstacles etc). This year we are using a blend of tri-rye gold, thermal -blue and thermal - blue blaze and are applying at a rate of 4-5 lbs per k, depending on current lawn density.

group, you charge $150 for 3000sq ft?

I must be REALLY low in jersey, i get good seed in 50lb bags for $70-75 per.

One bag is enough for nearly two acres of land. I charge $150 for an acre with current customers, and 20% more for quotes only reqeusting overseeding.

Id love to get $400+ or something like that for spreading out $75 worth of seed. I have a pto 500lb capacity spreader on my tractor and a pull behind 150lb hopper seeder that i can tow behind a nother garden tractor.. I can spread seed fairly quickly, do aerations with the other machine and spread out lime stone etc.
