    We did between 50-60 last season.
    Are you trying to determine if owning a machine is worth the money? How many do you do?

    Ryan Aerator & a pull-behind on the Z (can't remember the brand, but not a homeowner one).

    I dont do any yet, I am working on starting this year. I was trying to determine if owning the equipment was worth it, as well, if people were doing a lot of them.

    My plan was to lead with an aeration campaign to start off the year along with spring clean-ups and the go into the mow season.

    Any other ideas for leading off the year, promotions that work, etc? Thanks!

    We had a goal of $10000. last season. We did $10500. Approximately 80% of this aeration was done with our tractor.

    I typically do 1 in the fall, and sometimes 1 in the spring, (if it's been dry).

    A question: Is anyone aware of an aerator brand that allow for 4" plugs? The brands I have used normally only allow for 2", but I have a potential client that says the company that normally aerates her lawn leaves 4" plugs. Any thoughts? Thanks
