    Wow, I charge about half that amount. Maybe my prices are too low.

    What is the average size lawn you are working on at that price?

    I like those prices. Especially if you are going in and doing a quality job. Why not get a good price for quality work.

    I don't slit seed, but I do topdress with organic matter at about $40 to $60 per M depending on the size of the property.

    By the way, I just received my Z-plugger this week, haven't had a chance to try it yet.

    I get between $30.00 and $35.00 per m. Flat and square get $30.00, trees, roots, a lot of landscaping get $35.00. Hey puttinggreens, how do you spread your organic matter?

    Wow! I wish I could get that much per/M! Around here you get $50/M for entirely finish grading, raking, and drill seeding a 20,000 sf. lawn, including starter fert.:dizzy: I suppose if you are dealing with much smaller properties, your price per M will go up.

    Right in line, do you ever aerate prior to slit seeding?

    I charge by the hour for slice seeding $70 per hour. Covers all materials, labor, insurance, and equipment replacement cost.

    10-12 cents a square foot for slice seeding (with seed) and 2 cents a square for aerating (w/o seed). Large slice seeding and aerating jobs I try to cut the customer a break but that all depends. I have a 100.00 minimum for aerating and I always try to aerate and slice seed most lawns I renovate. The two combined is by far the best way to insure seed to soil contact.IMO
