    what would you charge to thatch an acre. I don't own a power rake, but it costs $10 an hour to rent. What would you charge to rake it, probably twice, and clean it all up. $200? sounds fair?

    I would probably charge about $350 for 10,000 square feet. The power raking goes pretty quick but its a lot of work to clean up. Then you have to get rid of the thatch.

    the thatch isn't a problem to get rid of, and i know the thatching goes quickly, but i can't remember how long it took to clean-up the last one i did.... so for an acre you would charge over $1000?!?!

    Ok so that might be a bit extreme. Seems like you would want to be $4-500 though.

    We get min $95.00 for property 60x100. $200.00 for 1 acre is cheap min $600.00 not a penny less.
