Aerate is base cut times 2
Dethatch is base cut times 5

I charge 1 dollar a square ft. 2000 square ft = $2000. Or just give me a cookie and a glass of milk and I will be happy.

I agree with base cut x2 if you can use a pull behind aerator. If using a self propelled system I charge 3x a cut. Of course this will depend on difficulty.

And if you use those spiked shoes, you charge base cut x 1000.

Base cut times 4. If it's a large lawn, deduct a little, cause times 4 will price you out of the ballpark!
Be sure to leave a checklist for the customer to mark their sprinkler heads, otherwise, you might spend your profit (and weekend) fixing broken heads OR as a upsale-offer to do it for them for a fee of course.

WOW, I'm glad we all know where we are here??? I guess if you ask a "new guy" question, in the place that was created to ask a "new guy" question, you've been completely misconstrued? Can someone please tell me where to find the correct place to ask an honest question?

Dude, don't let dildos discourage your endeavors in any way. Most people who know what their talking about aren't threatend by a guy hundreds of miles away. You will find that the majority of members on this forum are very helpful to any level of question. Anyone whom enjoys TRUE success remembers that they too were once a beginner. Tell me, how successfull can you be when you have 7,000+ post??? Seems like a lot of keyboard time to me???? Or maybe they just type fast.....hmmm????? You PM me if it helps man, I would be happy to lend some ideas. After all, that is what this site was made for!

Honestly, do a search for aeration prices and you will get alot of results. I have found in my area it is around $9-12/ 1000 sq. ft. I charge in the neighborhood of $9.75/1k sq.ft., depending on the yard. So, a 10k sq. ft. lawn is around $100. That should give you a start. Others will have more info but that's how I do it.

I just look at the yard and make up a price...no formula. I charge a $65.00 minimum. There are some variables such as slopes, sprinklers, etc. so I don't have a formula. I think that this year if a yard has hard to do slopes, I'll give a really high price. I've got 1 yard that is hard to cut the slopes even with a 21" mower, so I'm not even going to attempt to aerate the slopes.
