Oh yeah, I rent the aerator and still make out great on income.
right, i understand what your saying there. Ive heard numerous people stick to the 2x to 3x amounts. Is that for a single pass? And does that price include overseeding, or adding compost etc? Because I havent done this service before, im trying to get my quotes correct from the start. I dont want to loose a bunch of money on this service, and I know that this work will be harder than regular mowing services. Because of these two reasons, i dont want to get my inital quotes low on regular customers that will than expect the service cheap. I know what i can charge for lawn services in my area, and what wont work...so I already have an idea on what 2x or 3x will be....i just dont know if yall include overseediing, or topdressing services included in those 2x or 3x prices. And that makes a big difference in a quote.
