First off i wouldnt even think about aerating and seeding until late august, early september. Anything you do now will not live, if it comes up at all. Hard to tell you what to charge, i dont have a set fee for aerating and seeding.
Almost 3 grand to aerate and overseed an acre??? You're talking at the most $400 for the seed. $2500 to aerate then and broadcast? I missed something somewhere.Originally posted by T.E.
Spoke with my Lesco guy the other day just to see if he knew what some of the other lco's were charging to aereate and overseed in my area $65.00 dollars a thousand.
Nice idea BTW.Originally posted by JTHutch
I usually include a spot seed in the spring for areas that didn't come in as well.
Unmatchable. Been doing it that way for the last 9 years with exceptional results. We seed immedately after aerating for the best results.Originally posted by mtdmaster
How well does seeding after aerating work? I personally never coupled the two together, and I am curious.
Thank you...I was beginning to think I was a little "slow at the switch" there for a moment. I still can't see someone shelling out 3 grand to aerate and reseed an acre of lawn...unless they have more money than brain.Originally posted by kickin sum grass
We are also getting 28 - 35 per 1000
No way John. New lawn install doesn't include aerating. Only established lawns are aerated. Even at a rate of 10lbs/k of new lawn area for seeding, 3 grand is still hosing the customer...big time IMO.Originally posted by GLAN
Could it be that the $60 per thousand is a new lawn install by seed?
