I've heard any where from 4-6 times the price of a lawn cut. Do a search of the words, aeration, aerate, dethatching ect...

There is so much info on that here you can spend days reading. Like Bob said, do a search.

You will find that an average would probably be somewhere in the ball park of:
$10/m sf for aerations
$30/m sf for dethatching one direction (front to back)
$45/m sf for detahtching two directions (front/back - side/side)

Hope this helps.

are those numbers for 1000 sq ft?

Those figures multipliers for each thousand square feet of turf area.
A 10,000 (10/m) sf lawn would be:

Aeration: $100
Dethatching: $300 one direction or $450 bi-directional

I would like to know if anyone else out there is getting $30 per 1000 sq.ft. for power raking? If not, what are you charging?

Power raking is nasty tough work. You should get 30.00. No way joe home owner will do it himself(a second time).

My charges are $12 per 1000 for aeration and $24 per 1000 for aeration/seeding/fert. I also sell soil test for $25 when aerating.
