    1. Are you working alone or do you have help? Charge per hour per man.
    We charge $120.00 a yard.
    2. Do you get your supplies wholesale? Make sure you charge enough to replace plants.
    3. Are you slit seeding or broadcast seeding? Cost of material, straw if any, or rental equipment and drive time and a delivery fee for everything
