One of the HOA's that I maintain asked me to aerate. They wanted it done now because the ground is so hard and the water is just sitting on top of the ground, then running off. I say ok, it's $.015 per sq ft. They say fine. I did it, it came to just over 370,000 sq ft. Their bill was roughly $5550. I talked to a few locals before i gave them this price as I had never done a property this large and they thought i was dead on. The treasure sends me a check with a note that thought i was "a little over priced, don't you think?" I sent him a response letter that said what I stated above. That our prices are reevaluated every year with the market and that he is getting a fair price. We had roughly 62 man hours and 40 something tractor hours (Grasshopper with 60" aeravator). This property has tons of obstacles and STEEP hills that really only have one way to approach them, sideways which equals NO FUN! One of us was riding on the fender to keep the wheel on the ground and the other driving. Then add 150000 degrees outside in the shade. Was I way off on pricing?
