    Turf I think a 50LB. bag covers around 700sf and yes a bag is about $13.50 back in the summer for me from Shemins also.

    That was the first time that I used it and I really liked it but for 98000 sf that will be a hell of a lot of spreading and some money also.
  4. Apply at 50 to 100lbs/m

    Generally applied at 75lbs/m, with the higher rate for slopes.

    I applied 90 bags, to 60m job in 3 hrs by myself with a walk behind spreader

    Just curious as to why it has to be spreadable pellets. You could have a reputable hydroseeding company do 98K of turf for a little more than what you would pay just for the mulch at $ 20.00-28.00 per bag.
