    What formula do you guys use for pricing aerating? I was thinking twice what you charge per application round or something. Let me know what you think!

    Up to this season my min was $90.00 ( under 5k ) this season I raised it to $125 then 5-10k is $195, 11-15k $245, 16-20k $325 20 and over $450

    All these numbers are subject to change, I may have a 15k lawn thats a square with nothing in the way, they may be less than a 10k lawn thats hills, beds, trees, So I really need to look over the lawn first. But use those prices as a ruler

    ...my former employer would charge triple app price and put a nice coat of milorganite over it after it was done. Charged double w/out the milorganite.

    I figure about a $1.50 per thousand with a minimum of $125

    $1.50 per thousand? Isn't that a little cheap?

    I'm thinking I need to find a new market. I knew my county was real competitive but this is silly. I knew I was looking at expanding my area for a reason.
