Here's the deal. Reading through all the posts on aeration and overseeding and using the pricing guide from my local lesco, it looks like an average price for aeration/overseed/starter fertilize is around $25 per 1000sf. Now when using this on a smaller lawn like 10,000sf and having to aerate by hand....the pricing structure seems to work out ok. In the case of a larger property which I am giving a price to, it seems to be ridiculously high. Property is 55,000sf. It can be done w/ a pull behind aerator. So $25 x 55 = $1375.00 I will have around $350 invested in materials (seed/fertilizer/rental of aerator). I'm am figuring on about a half day to complete. So.................$1375.00 - $350.00 = $1025.00 $1025.00 seems like a lot of money to make. Yeah, i have to go get the supplies, aerator, ins, wear on machine, etc....but that seems like a hell of a lot of $$$ for this job. I'm thinking more like $15 per 1000sf for the aerate/overseed/fertilize. I don't want to low ball....but the $25 seems high. Am I RIGHT or am I WRONG?????????????
