    Sell the sod. Tell them the screwing around they'll do to make the seed job look as good as the sodding won't be worth it and won't even end up saving them much money. Watering is a PITA, grass takes weeks to grow, never gets as thick as sod, etc etc. I would sell a sod job until I was blue in the face because of how much better it looks.

    I couldn't find anyone willing to drive to Gainesville to do a 3000ft hydroseeding job. These customers don't like talking in person or on the phone and had me email them quotes of all of the work that they wanted done. I'll let you guys know what happens as soon as I hear from them.
