50 # bales of clean wheat straw you should get by with 35-40 blown on. double it if you hand shake it on.CutNLawns said:I was going to ask the same question today. Looking at renting a blower but wondered what kind of yield for a blower. I have a 34000 sq ft new yard to install and I'm thinking it would suck to do the straw by hand!
You never rake it off, it decomposes and adds nutrients. If they raked it off they tore out 1/2 the new seedling that you can not see through the straw and if the grass was already up then they just tore out the shoots.Also, I won't have to rake it off and damage the grass.
That is exactly what i had figured in my cost. Thanks for the help!olderthandirt said:50 # bales of clean wheat straw you should get by with 35-40 blown on. double it if you hand shake it on.
BTW-- 1 hr at the most with 2 people blowing it on.
