    I am looking at doing the final grade, seed, mulch on a construction job along a highway. Anybody do this type of work and need help working the numbers. Contractor did tell me that he pays $2.00 a foot for silt fencing. That sounds good but don't know how to price errosion blanket or hydro seeding.

    Any help is appreciated...

    It depends on your seed requirements. Here highway seeding is going for $.55 to $.75 a sq yd. What type of blankets are you using on this job? Straw blankets run around $.55 a sq yd installed up to $1.10 for coconut blanket. TRM's are even more $$

    Paul, I haven't gotten any specs on the job yet. The only blankets I have ever used were VDOT approved but they cost me $2.41 /yd.
