    How much are you guys charging to aerate lawns? Do you charge by the square ft., if so how much per sq. ft. Does same rates apply for power raking?
    Thanks :waving:

    Welcome to the site. If you don't get much response on this, don't take it personal. It's just that this topic has been covered so much. Do a search on here and you will find plenty of info.

    Now that sound a little more in line in today's world. $75 minimum for something the same area as my spare bedroom IMO.

    And the poor guy who doesn't have his own aerator (a really good one) has to rent one for approx. $50 for half day and then how much does that guy charge. I'd have to say $125 minimum.
