    I recently had a request to put together a quote to reseed a lawn. The lawn is in pretty bad shape, the homeowner cuts it himself and he waits until it's extremely long before he cuts it. Lots of built up old grass.

    I figure I should dethatch and aerate the grass. Rent that equipment.
    Spread the seed and starter fertilizer.
    Tell the homeowner to keep it watered.

    Anything else? I'm located in the NC mountains 3500-4500 feet and our growing season has just begun. Thanks a lot!

    If he doesn't care for the lawn any better than that, just put out the seed... Fertilizer is only going to make his mowing habits worse...
