TLS You have a good Point!!!!! I don't realy advertise aeration just every year someone I did last year calls and I bump the price up $5 and they still want the service. I am part timer. My full time job is mailman[anthrax delivery device] and this time of year starts our xmas season . Our mail volume picks up and its all I can do to keep up with both jobs so I'm lucky to finish servicing the customers I have. True brown is so bad in my area that I am hoping to get my liscence for fert aps this winter. I'm aware that I can apply fert without a lisc. but not pesticides. But you made your point I should charge more!!!! I'm not a low baller by any streatch of the imagination . I'm in a position of handeling as many lawns as I can without hiring more people so when someone new asks me I give them a big price and If they say yes I find the time to cut them. Then I try and loose one of the crappy lawns. Not by doing a bad job but putting up with less bs from the customer hoping they will get someone else.

Hey Hoss, just so you know, it wasn't the Gardening by the Yard show. That's the one with the wacky guy named Paul. That guy's entertaining!

I'm not sure what the show was that I saw. I caught it in the middle and didn't stay until the end. I just know it was on the HGTV channnel.

i'm with kutnkru on this

35-40 1000sq ft sounds closer to realistic for me, if somebody tells me that hgtv says it should be 35-40 bucks let them do it. its funny how everybody can tell you what it should cost, but can they or will they do it, thats what i thought. and yes there will be some scrub with a el cheapo turf scratcher that will propably do it, those customers would be just as well off to take there 35-40 bucks and throw it in the yard, some people don't have a clue.

Gogetter, I didn't mention any show to them. They came back with that response, not me. I didn't know what show it was.
