    How much to charge for aeration and seeding on a 4.0 acre property.. I've always charged $199 for up to 1/2 acres, of course this includes house, driveway, etc.. So even by this equation, I'd be looking at around $1600 which seems like an awfully high amount.. opinions please!?

    i dont know, they sent me an email through my website so i havent talked to them yet.. I'm not really looking to charge an hourly rate, what would any of you other guys charge for 4 acres aeration and seeding?

    all depends how far they are from you (gas) and if you really want the job (of course you do, but do you really want it????) if you really want the job go with what your gut is telling you to charge, then you will be happy and not feel like you had been taken for a ride.

    My bid would be around $3800 for aeration and seeding depending on how much turf there is but I would be right around this amount.

    do you guys think this is an average price?
    we're talking 4.0 acres of actual turf, to be aerated and seeded.
