    12000sf x 112 yds of loam 3'' deep (A YARD + labor to spread by hand $60.00/ with equip $40) DELIVERY

    seed 150lbs @ 2.00 per lb = $300
    starter fert 2 50 lb bags= $50.00
    hay (weed free) 400 bails = $1200
    labor (do you have equipment or a shovel and wheelbarrow)
    with equip 1250
    by hand 2500


    loam-like above
    hydro seed-.10 a foot 1200 (already contains fert, mulch and seed)
    labor (do you have equipment or a shovel and wheelbarrow)
    Usually with hydro seed if you know someone in the business they might charge you .05 cents a foot, then you can charge .10

    for me I'd charge a total $7500
