    Core aeration $10 per 1,000 sq is what most charge. Some a litle higher.

    We normally charge 3 times more than what it costs the customer for their grass cutting. Sometimes 4 times more depending upon the terrain.
    Located here in PA. Don't know if we are too high or too low, but so far our price hasn't been questioned.

    KIRBY; DO YOU HAVE GOOD LUCK WITH SEEDING AFTER AERATION.

    Yep, unless a hurricaine comes through, like last year. :( The aerated lawns lost seed, the aeravated lawns faired much better.

    We charge 3 times the mowing charge, sometimes 4 times as much depending on how many obsticles there are in the way here in the Chicago area.

    i charge 6 times the mow price for aeration and overseeding.
     
  10. Got a second question in regard to this post. How many of you remove the cores after you aerate?? Doesn't it screw up your machines if you try to pulverize using your machines?

    First time I have a client have their lawns aerated and they leave the plugs there, let them know in the future i will charge them for removal. Second time, guess who get's a bill?
