    Do any of you guys do large area hydroseeding? I have an opportunity to do some with a subcontractor of mine for a subdivision and wanted to see what the going rate was for large areas (3acres+). Thanks for any help. My cost from the sub is $1,500/acre for a rye/fescue mix with everything including tacfier.

    i dont know what it works out to but we have a guy in michigan that does it for 4 cents a square foot. i think thats right or maybe it was 4 cents a sq yard. i would have to punch it in on a calculator to find out.

    Sqft Is Probally Right. My Guy Is Quoting Me .03cents Per Square Foot. So With The Regionaly Different Prices, That Should Be Right.

    Add a penny if you can get your money fast and if he wants to use you as a bank 5.5cents.

    Good Info. I Upchagred 1.5cents Per Foot. For The Whole Job That Would Be An Upcharge Of $2,780.00 (4 Acres)

    1500 per acre is a very good price almost so good idk how hes making money... i would say if your paying .03 then go up to .05 and you should still be able to get the job...

    The Company I Am Subing Out To Is A Sod Farm That Is About An Hour Away That Has A Local Office. Keep In Mind A Lot Of Stuff Is More Expensive Up There In Jersey. Plus, This Is For A Fescue And Rye Mix. Not Straight Fescue Spray.

    I don't understand how they do it. I get that using my hay blower spreading mulch hay and usually get more than .03 cents a foot.

    Take that qoute and run. That is a great price from a sub. Not saying I couldnt match that but I'd happen to sharpen my pencil. Homeowners I am generally in the .10 area for moderate raking and hydroseeding on jobs from .5 acres to 1 acre.
