HYDROSEEDING

Hi Folks:
Im about to embark upon a project and would appreciate your input. I do landscaping maintenance to pay the bills. Recently a friend introduced me to his boss who purchased a new house that sits on a large land area. This is in a new development community so they are no old grasses to remove. The owner wants me to hydroseed the land areas all around his home which measures 156ft from the street sidewalk to the property line at the rear of the house and approximately the same measurement from side to side. I have no experience in this area. Where do I begin? How do I obtain the square yard (or is it square foot) of the entire lawn areas to be sprayed with slurry? Can one person handle this project? An established landscaping company owns or rent large hydro-mulching machines but is there a cheaper option that is just as effective? For example, is there a small 2-cycle sprayer I can purchase from Home Depot or Lows and do the job myself? Also how much slurry would I need to buy to cover an area 156 feet square? Also what process is necessary to obtain a nice level ground prior to hydroseeding? The owner has not yet moved into his new home and is not in a hurry to. I would like to do take on this project myself. Is this realistic or am I all wet?
Thanks in advance.

My opinion, based on your current knowledge of hydroseeding, is that you'd better leave this one to the professionals. Someone who pays a fair amount to have his yard hydroseeded probably has high expectations and will be disappointed with a first time job. If you're interested in getting into the hydroseeding business, why not find a local contractor who does hydroseeding, and strike a deal with him where you can work with his crews on this job as a learning experience? That would be fair compensation to you for bird dogging this business for him.
