    I think your lucky to get $150 here to do that on a lot around 10,000 sqft

    shoot I did one today, about 6k sq ft of turf. No fert. Just aeration and slit seed. Got $305 and I was the lowest of four bids! $400k property though. It all depends on the market you are working in. If I were to drive about 10 minutes away from there I'd get laughed off the front porch.

    I've done about a dozen jobs in the last week and I'm pretty sure the lowest I've done was $80. that was a job this morning on a front yard that MIGHT have been 2k sq ft.

    I'd be about twice that. Did a 7K for $650 last Tues but that was putting down 25 pounds of starter fert too and I put down TTTF for seed which goes down kind of heavy (8lb/k)

    I only seed TTTF at 6lbs on an established lawn. Double pass

    Sounds about right. Was pretty bare/sparse in this case. Checked it today at 10 days and coming kind of slow due to cooler temps.
