    I hate dethatching: that being said I have 5 lawns that "want it"

    OK - normal lawn $50 to mow. $120 for the thatch?

    What's the magic formula?

    There is no magic formula. I take a close look at the lawn and try to determin how much thatch will be removed and how many hours the job will take.

    50 a lawn means nothing, square footage app, guess on how long it will take to do the job plus dumping fees 120 seem low cutting takes 30 minutes thatching will take 2 hour should be more than 120
