    I just moved in here in March of this year and two of my neighbors ask me when I aerate my lawn to do theirs and they would pay me. I wold like to give them a good deal but, we all know this is real work. The first lawn was 8k and rough, the second was 14k and rough with banks and a lot of trees. I don't like to mix bussiness and pleasure so, what' s your input and thanks in advance.

    Charge them your regular price, and do a really good job for them.

    give them your range,
    when i charge friends/family for stuff, for aerating i say, "i generally charge $10-13 per 1,000 sq. ft." and i just charge them 10 per k sq ft.
    they feel as though they get the deal, and you still make about what you regularly would
