I'm new to aerating and need some advice. I've never bid a job this size and would like to know what most of you would charge for aerating, overseeding, and fertilizing 4+ acres. The property is set on a hill with a 20 to 30 percent grade in the front and level in the back. Some of the areas have hard compacted soil. I don't have a rider to attach it to and need to know what to rent to do this job. If possible could you also give me a bottom line $$$ amount. What should I expect to pay for seed (fescue blend), and fert.? Any help is appreciated, thanks! P.S.-I did a search on this subject and came up with some ideas, but would like some more input.
