    About how much would you guys charge to aerate, overseed , & fertilize a 2 acre lawn .
    I never done this for anyone but myself (I got decent results).
    What else should I know. You can't be too basic, I could really use all the advice I can get.

    Jeff,
    $7580.00 seems like an extremely high rate to charge for 2 acres. My rate would be $21/k which includes discounts because of the size of the job. This comes to $1830.00.

    i only get about 40% of the jobs i bid for overseeding. i guess because my price is higher then otheres... we'll if i'm making what looks like about 50% more profit then others i'll probably stick to my price for now...

    I did one yesterday (2.1 acres) for $2700.

    This one was real easy...wide open with only 1 tree and completely flat. Me and 1 employee did the aerating, starter fert, and seed in about 3 hours.
