    I was wondering what other poeple charge for Aeration and Power Rake jobs. I have been charging $50 for aeration and $70 for power rake jobs and $20 for granulated fertalizer. Am I too high/low or am I competitive at that price? This is a set price for residential homes. Each place takes me about 30-45 min to do. What do ya think?

    how much do you pay for your fertilizer. because I was thinking to charge $15.00 because it cost me $5.00 for a bag that does one yard.

    I get fert for $6-8 a bag of 20kg, one bag does 3-4 lawns. So I am making at least $60 per bag. The big companies in town charge $35 per fert, but they use liquid fert. Most people think that $20 is a fair price.
