    How much would you charge to re seed a lawn that is about 6000 sq'? I want to use a overseeder.
    Also, I looked at Lesco's seed prices and their best stuff, I would spend about $325 or I can buy something cheaper at another store for half that. Is it really better to go with better seed?

    With lesco trigold it's not that much more expensive,and the results turn heads.

    Where can you find the Lesco Trigold? I would love to try it. I have been using the Rebel Elite. It is good seed but I am looking to cut cost where I can and that will increase profit.....

    Holy SMOLKES How much would yo spend? $325? What would you spending all that on, for 6000 sq. ft.? Here, we would get about $420 for the complete job - provided there is no grading involved. It would cost me about 80 to 120 bucks....depending on what type of seed I used (this includes a bag of starter fert., also). The only thing is, is that wouldn't have the expense of renting a slitseeder or dethatcher, or whatever means that are used. Even so though, yo are only looking at 75, maybe 100 bucks at the most (probably cheaper). This doesn't come to anywhere near $325. Are y9u sure you're figuring your expenses right?
