Core Aeration Minimum Price

I am sending a direct mail advertisement to all of my clients for 25% off core aeration if they sign-up before September 30. I am based out of central Minnesota and I am looking to see what others charge for a minimum around the country as well as locally.

Let me know you guys charge so I have a better idea of where the industry average is. Thanks a lot!

Depends on what the competition is charging. TruGreen charges $125 for a 5,000 sf lawn in NW Chicago suburgs. I'm sure they only get 2% of what they bid. I charge $39 min and do around 15 yards per day with my Lawn Solutions aerator. I have a sign I set up in the street advertizing aerations now and usually a neighbor signs up too. I know others will rip me for charging so little, but most of my work is 2 or 3 lawns together and this is what landscapers charge in this areas-usually see 8 flyers per season on doors quoting these prices.

Is this for aerating only or are you including seed/fert?

3.5 times the mowing price. Not all square footage is the same. Tough mow, tough aerate.

If you don't like my opinion...go around back for another view.
