    Customer wants me to sow seed, fert. and straw a section of ground that measures 9 feet wide by 108 feet long.

    Never done this for a customer, so I'm not real sure on how to price it.

    Thanks for your help!

    You're looking at about 5 pounds of seed, 7# of fertilizer, and 2 bales of straw, plus your time and overhead costs.
