    I have a regular customer that wants their lawn aerated. What do you guys typically charge for that..the same as a cut?

    Thanks

    typical aeration pricing is anywhere from 7 cents to 15 cents per square foot of the lawn. So a lot of times aeration is triple the cost of the lawn.

    I charge $15 per K with a $75 minimum.

    $75 min for up to 3000 sq ft, + $15 for each additional 1000. Most of my lawns are 3000 or under.

    To just do one lawn, doubt if you are going to get your client to pay for the aerating rental AND what you want to make. If you can, line up more jobs to justify the rental charge.

    I used to rent an aerator for the day($125) We would do 10 to 12 lawns at $75 each. It makes for a hard day of work though.
    I bought a good used one from the rental shop for $500.
