    Just checking to see what people are charging to overseed by 1000sq, or the acre. I did a few with a mataway and want to make sure I priced them right. We put down 4# per 1000, half rate in two directions. These were fairly bare lots. I am most concerned with the per acre price. Starter fert was separate. Thank you.

    I would am getting $15.00/k but only if I can do it the same times as I aerate or fertilize.

    Does that price include your seed?

    So you're charging separately for the aerating and fert right. The $15 is not for aerate/fert/overseed, is it?

    Good. I thought you were either crazy or "found" a truckload of stolen seed and fertilizer and that was keeping your cost down.:)
