Just wondering what some of you charge to aerate. I figure in all my materials and so forth ,but wondering if anyone has a set price per square foot or acre .

I'm confused.

$21 per square foot, I have 1920 square feet in my front yard.

21 X 1920 = $40,320

I know that's not right, please explain!

If this is the "special" price, I'd hate to see the regular rate

Maybe they meant $21 per 1000 square feet. I don't think even really expensive sod could touch that other figure.

Ndr

Even at $21 per 1000 sq yrds = 21 X 1.9 = $40 bucks to aerate, over seed, and fert! Can I sub you out!

If I have 1900 sq feet to aerate, overseed & winter fert I figure 1.9 X $49.5 = $94.00. I charge $120 dollars minimum.

For an example, 5000 square feet I would charge $247. 5 X $49.5.

That's funny. I think there was an error the way he posted it. I price by sq ft to start and then add difficulty. funny too is the fact that my number is also 21.

$0.021 X SQ.FT. = Starting Price + PITA = Price
$0.021 X 1900. = 39.90 + 0 (easy) = $39.90

I also have a minimum though of $75 - $105 depending on difficulty.
