Shredding & blowing peat moss on lawn?

I doubt the government owns any of those. I think they are owned by subcontractors who provide the service to the prime contractor on construction projects. I know they recently redid some roads here, with new paving, curbs, and sidewalks, and some contractor came around and sprayed the stuff. I have also seen it done when a developer is building homes. If you want to look into it, call a large contractor and ask for the name of his subcontractor. You could probably have it done without having to buy the equipment, but I would guess it would be more expensive than the traditional method I described above. I'm not real confident that the slurry alone will produce a nice lawn; I think it will produce a lawn with a lot of ryegrass, and you will have to do something to get a finer grass to replace that. I worked in a new building where they had used the slurry, and in the two years I was there, they never got to the point where the grass looked good.

Mama Bear:
You can buy a leaf vacuum/blower at any big box store like Home Depot or Lo wes, as well as many, many stores that sell gardening equipment. Many, per haps most, use the fan blade to chop up leaves as well and are perfect for spreading peat moss. The ones I'm familiar with are electric and you should be able to find one for considerably less than $100, particularly if you w ait for the fall sales. The cost of the bales of peat moss should be in the neighbourhood of +/- $25 per 1000 square feet. Go to the following YouTube link to see a video demonstration:

On another note, I sympathize with regard to people who ignore the simple s traight-forward question you ask and instead clog the thread with irrelevan t and unasked for advice, much of it simply wrong, which leaves you and ot hers who might have come across your post in search of an simple answer to a simple question absolutely frustrated. People, if you can't answer the qu estion that was asked of you here, BUZZ, for lack of the stronger word, OFF !!!!!

I've had my news server occasionally burp up some very old posts and replied to them without noticing the date.
How that happens, I do not know. But it does happen.
