Ok FINALLY!!!!!

Someone that kept their word, was on time and gave me an estimate with 3 inch plugs

I was really beginning to think there were none of you guys in my area with any respect.

Give me you all's opinion, measured 15,000 SQ FT and is going to make double pass pulling 3 inch plugs and cost $225. This sound about right?

Said he's out my way quit often and when the weather breaks and we have moisure in the ground just give him a heads up and can fit me into the schedule in 3 to 4 days.

I'm thinking second week of Sept as of now but if the weather don't change I can seen all the way up into November here with great results.

Also, said my lawn was in great health.

Just rent a plug aerator and do it yourself, average cost for rental is about $50 for a day.

Every tool rental place ive ever been to carries them, even home depot.

Kinda figured, the other estimate was $80 but only 1" plugs

Last time I got it done it was $140 but wasn't what I wanted either and I wasn't home when it was done. 3 years back and it was aeigator I think was what it was called; drove spikes in the ground and vibrated the soil to loosen it.

I learned from that so this time I'm asking questions, plugs will be left on top of the ground so its definitely aerating

Just got another estimate for $165 and he was talking something I haven't heard of before so wanted you guys input

He likes to put 200 Lbs of weight on the machine and pull at least 5" plugs this sound about right?

www.topcutlawnsbg.com

$165 is better then the last at $225 so I told him he had the job, has a property down the street scheduled for 2 weeks out so going to swing by here the same day.
