    I don't know about the mass area. But here in the KY area it goes for anywhere from 70.00 per 1000 to 100 per 1000. depends on what all you have to do.....

    Hope that helps you out.

    and thats to put down seed, starting fertilizer, and shredded straw, with very minor prep raking. just once or twice over the soil with a york rake to loosen for seed sewing.
