    How much do you guys price your special services at? ie. dethatching, aerating, chemical application I would like to be able to determine my price for these services by what I charge for mowing on the same lawn. ie. I could charge twice as much for aerating as I do for mowing on the same lawn. Does anyone have any thoughts on this? Thank you very much for any help. RX7

    We charge per man/hour on some services and per sq ft on others. Depends on the service, spraying and fert are by sq ft.
    Large involved commercial or residential are per man/hour. Small residential are by sq ft for some like aeration and dethatching.

    aerating is a lot more time and especially WORK than mowing x2
    More like x4 or 5.
