    I have a new customer who wants me to reseed her yard. I plan on renting a slit seeder to do it. The yard is aout 20,000 sq ft. How much should I charge a sq ft? Also if it already had preemergent on it how long do I need to wait? Or is there something else I could do?

    $75 per 1000 is what a local company was getting 5 years ago. Up or down from that is anybody's guess.

    We charge $100.00 per K for one direction and $125.00 for two directions.
    Tell Them if they slice seed now they will have to redo it in fall.
