Just curious on how do you pay your employees that does core aeration

Do you pay them by the hour and they already have the work all lined up?

Do you sub contract them and pay them by % of how many aeration they can get and that finish the work (like door to door)

I have employees that I pay by the hour, and if they are aerating, then they are aerating, if they are mulching, then they are mulching, same pay rate. The machines are self propelled and more or less one speed, so they can't really slack too much. Plus, I have a good feel for how long it should take to do the work, so if I think it is taking too long, we have a talk.

Yea pretty much, but if they have some one we do not take care of inquire about the service while he is doing one of our own accounts and they decide to go with it then I will give him some extra money.
