    It depends on alot of things.

    1) can you store salt on site?
    2) how much are you paying for salt?
    3) are you salting hard pack, or pre salting?
    4) how bad do you want the work?


    I am sure there are more, but I think I made the point.

    Give us the specs and you will get a better answer.

    Yea, check on salt first.

    At my prices, I would charge somewhere in the neighborhood of $300


    if my math is correct. :drinkup:

    Like bossman said it depends on alot. Condition in weather and the site have alot to do with it. Figure about 400-500lbs per acre. you have about 2.5 acre so about a ton and a half. but check price and availablity first before quoting.
