    If you charge $35 to cut,trim and blow. What is a good price to overseed? Do you supply the seed?

    Overseeding<p>In this area you can charge 4 to 4 1/2 cents per sq foot. You supply the seed.

    Does this pricing include the prep work (dethatching or aerating)

    WOW! Found something I've been looking for. I have 80,000 sp. ft. that needs overseeded. I don't know just exactley how to go about it or what to charge.<br> Would a good double areation and spreding the seed with a rotary spreader be sufficient. Should a apply a starter fertilizer first? Hope somebody answers soon as I need to get this contract done and in the mail soon. You can also email me at jlboots@ris.net

    Double areation and overseeding with spreader should be fine. Yes I would put down starter also. With such a large area <br>you might reduce the price per square foot 1/2 cent. Hope you get the account!
