I would go more by time spent than 3x something. Also, it'll depend upon how much seed you use and the seed quality. As a rough guess, I would probably charge about 2x mowing plus the cost of the seed (since you are aerating - which is probably harder than mowing, and seeding - which is probably easier than mowing) so it sort of averages out to mowing twice and then just add the seed cost. Just my 0.02 cents

1/4 acre lot aerate and seed i get $140-$160. I have a pluger 850 hydro so I can aerate and seed in 30 min easy. I hate going to the door to get paid $150 and iwas only there for 30min but no one has complained yet.

How many lawns do you do this service on a year?

Just started getting into lawn renovations this season, BUT
I just quoted 5K sq ft lawn for aerate (double pass), slit seed, and starter fert at $175.
No guarantees - cust must water daily if no rainfall.

I think it is a neat little niche to get into.
