dethatching price

No idea how tp price this. I was just going to double what would charge to cut the lawn. For example if I would charge $40 to cut lawn then $80 to dethatch. Does that sound reasonable????? Any input would be great. Thanks

i think you will be killing your self, @ $80/ dethatching

dethatching ~~~~~~~~ $ 20 / k ~~ $ 25/ k

core aeration ~ 5k == $85,
10k == $ 150,
then, $12/k after

This would be a little high around here. I usuallly go about 2.5 times mowing cost for dethatching ($30 mowing = $75 dethatching).

$25 per 1000. The equipment is expensive and it's a time consuming task not to mention all the debris you collect. I always tell people that they'll be amazed at how much thatch will come out of their lawn.

Around here, dethatching (ACTUAL dethatching,-not just raking or power raking) goes for 15 per M.

here, we go by what the monthly service costs.

if you get a $100 a month, the one time thatch should be no less then $165, and as much as $200.
if you go by cut, it would be approximately $50? no way, that's hard work. there may be low spots that the machine didn't get good, and you have to use a rake, etc.

thanks. that's an '80. same thing as 78,79, but no emblems, like hood ornament. i like it plain.
its also a 355, 350 turbo. it has a crappy 3.73 1 legger, but i need atleast 4.10, or 4.56. i have a 3400-3600 stall converter. victor jr intake ported heads/intake. solid lift cam.
the tank is out, i'm bringing it ot have the sump welded on for the 3/8 braided lines i have running the full length of the car. its a work in progress, i'll finish someday. i'm in no rush, its safe in my garage.
