Go do a quote today......

30000 sq ft. Rockhound, 40 ton of soil spread and seeded.
Gave Mrs. a Price of $4000 ...........shows me a written quote of $2195.

Wonder if the guy will turn up!

Typically around $1000+ per 10000 sq ft Rockhound & Hydroseed here in the Midwest.
What are other guys quoting...and or getting?

I typically don't use the Rock Hound. For a Harley Rake (SS model), I charge six cents for small yards (10,000 sq. ft, $200 min) and low as two cents for large yards (acre +). Hydro seeding starts at six cents/sq. ft ($200 min.) and the cheapest I'll do it is 3.5 cents/sq. ft (once again, acre +). I haven't gotten a lot of the bigger jobs. People are doing acre jobs for $1300 or less per acre (dry seeding though, incluedes prep) in this area. I guess they like to work and not get paid a lot:) Hope this helps...

The product you mention is not in my vocabulary. Soil yes.

About the last post about the economy - yes, it appears like people are on a culture "gliche" at the moment for bargains.

The bargain hunt craze is already winding down here.

I just got a $13,000 install, which is big for me. In fact, since we do so much pruning, installs can really cause the 1/2 and 1 day pruning projects to pile up.

This one has a pond, a dry creekbed ( to be a concealed cistern), a gravel and stone patio, and replacement of all plant material.

It will be an entire webpage in itself next fall - a start to finish with all the elements.

So things are picking up.

Sure they will for most everybody.

Notice the unemployement rate dropped?
