    I'm looking at overseeding about 1.5 acres. How many bails of straw do you think I'll need it. I'm thinking about using a leaf blower to apply it.

    If you are using a straw blower you will need about 175 bales of straw. you can roughly get around 350 - 500 sq ft out of a bale. I always figure low with sq. footage so i have enough straw.
