Discussion in 'Lawn Mowing' started by LAWNGODFATHER, Sep 20, 2001.

  1. I know this has been done before and just wanted to give you guys and gals somthing to do. I have a lawn that is 28,000 rounded up. It's a medium to medium rare dence turf.

    Price it for all below and using Lesco Team-mates seed


    Starter fertilizer:


    2,000 sq/ft of slit seeding:

    I will try to sell this at the best price given. I know what my prices are. But this is somewhat of a contest. No prize, but pride. I will let you all know who won when I sell it.

  7. Thanx Harold. Since no one was repying, I sold it for $420. I noticed you put the same price. I did it today. Thanx for the reply. I guess we use some what the same price scale. BTW it took 2 of us 1.75 hrs to complete. Lawn Dog how did you come up with yours?

    Harold`s price was actually 460.00, I was thinking in the same lines with the aeration, and fertilizing, but was unsure about the slit seeding prices.

    I have started doing this service, and have not bid on a slit seeding job yet.
    So you are saying that the slit seeding rate is 35.00 per 1000s/f.
    What would be the charge if you was to slit seed larger areas, say 10,000 or more s/f ? Do you offer a discount for larger areas ?
  9. We used a tow aerater. One guy pulled it and the other spread the fert and seed and ran the slit seeder.

    I just went fo $15 per 1000


    Me forgot to add the extra 2,000 for slit seeding.DUH! Had to do in a hurry.

    How many pounds per 1000 did you apply? What was the cost of the seed?

    Harold, 8 pounds seed for 28,000 sf of dead turf?
