    Im very new to the Lawncare biz.... I have property that is about 1.4acres
    I need help on pricing aerating the property.. It's pretty wide open a couple trees nothing major though... Also I'd like to know where I stand on my price to cut, which is $75... It takes me and one guy trimming about 45-50 mins... Is that a good price? I just want make sure I'm not cheating myself out of money thanks again...

    I would try to be closer to $90 on mowing that lawn if it takes that long. If you're happy with the profit you're getting that's what matters.

    If you have the right equipment aerations are generally 2-3 times the cost of a mow. If all you have is a 19 inch aerator, you might as well ask him for a dump truck full of 100's.
