I have a couple customers that would like their lawns aerated as well as overseeded. They are about 1/6-1/4 acre homes. How long will it take me on avg and what should I charge ( if I have to rent this machine at about $50/day)? I've heard one guy around here charges like $50 to aerate. But he owns his own machine. The only way I could charge that low is if I got at least 4-5 in one day or else I dont' think it would be worth it based on the expense of rental. I've heard this works very well for over seeding though and I could add hopefully another $30-50 at least for over-seeding right? I'm not sure what to charge. Also, how is the best way to aerate and overseed? I've read that in the morning is best cause the ground may be softer or if not, have em use a sprinkler before I come out.
