The cost per 100 gallons of hydroseed is approximately $2.70 for fertilizer and tackifier, $14 for seed, and $22 for mulch. This comes to a total cost of $38.70 or about 4 cents per sq ft. This pricing is based on sourcing materials through VSI and does not include freight.
Sourcing mulch and seed locally will help a fair amount on your bottom line, as these items are heavy to ship and freight gets expensive. Most of our customers report costs just under 3 cents per sq ft. They are also charging a minimum of 12 cents per sq ft on jobs one acre and larger. For smaller jobs, 30 cents per sq ft is not uncommon.
