    Please enlighten the op and I.

    Give us some prices and some fertilizer products for the 820,000 sq ft.

    Are we considering Compost fertilizer here?

    TreeGal, you were able to notice the OP was from NY.

    Did you search beyond that info regading the OP, Did you look at his website?

    He does not seem to have a DUMP TRUCK, FORK LIFT and TRACTOR, Turfco Spreader of sorts to spread this or TOPDRESS compost onto 820,000 square feet.

    ygim: tell us more about this property. Is it 820,000 sq ft of finished turf or are there part naturalized areas? etc.

    Still waiting for some justification for this statement.

    How did you determine this from his website? What about renting the necessary equipment if he doesn't have it? What about subcontracting to someone who has the equipment?

    Agreed. If it is not turf .... one might raise the question why you are fertilizing it to begin with.

    Without knowing the details of the job or the capabilities of the OP ..... it is safe to say you are making wild assumptions and jumping to conclusions .... sound familiar?

    It is a very expensive horse farm. They want me to fertilize the areas where the horses are.

    Kiril it is safe to assume you are the first 3 letters in assume. Sound familiar?

    YGIM, what about insurance on this job. Expensive horse farms. Walk away.

    Im waiting for some brilliant ideas on how to harness the power of the horse poo for the job.
