    Assuming 120k sq.ft. & 5#'s per 1k sq.ft.:

    (1) Aeration - $12/1k sq.ft. or $1440

    (2) Fertilizer - $30/10k sq.ft. + $300 application fee or $660

    (3) Overseeding - $120/10k sq.ft. + $300 application fee or $1740

    Grand Total - $3840...assuming my math is correct

    If you have to ask you probably can't do the job. Mulch alone would be about $2700
