Our seed selection is very extensive and covers a complete line of vegetable seed, grass seeds, forage seed, deer plot seeds, and custom made mixes. These are sold by the pound and in pre-measured bags.
I am wanting to plant warm weather food plots for my deer this spring and I am looking for what the best things to plant are. I am currently considering Red clover and cowpeas. I am also wondering how much Lime and fertilizer would go well with these choices. I am only planting about 5 acres.
I have a 250′ x 200 ‘ area that I want to grow grass on.
1. How much seed and hay will I need?
a. How much will it cost if I use St. Augustine?
b. How much will it cost if I use Burmuda?
2. How much will it cost to sod 50000 sq ft?
a. St. Augustine:
Bermuda seed is rated at 2-3lbs per 1,000 square feet for new planting and .5-1lb per 1,000 square feet for repair. The cost of Bermuda seed has sky rocketed over the past 2-3 years, and it ranges between $5.00 – $10.00 per pound. We have new seed coming in this year and are not quiet sure what the selling prices will be. Bermuda is a warm season grass, and is not planted until the temperature stays above 65 degrees F at night in our area. So you would need 3 each 50lb bags for new planting and no more than 1 50lb bag for repair. Bermuda sod would cost $85.00 pallet and require 111 pallets. There is 450 square feet per pallet.
Total Sod Cost – roughly $9000.00
Total seed and straw – $1000.00
Sod can be installed immediately and provide erosion control, and seed will require waiting for approximately three months.
If you need more information, let me know.
We carry 3 different types of mixes containing red clover and cowpeas. Come by the store and we can give you a complete list of ingredients and prices.
We blend these at our mill here in Huntsville with fresh ingredients. We also have all the lime and fertilizers to go with the plot mixes.
