    Wow. I can't get anybody around here to pay more than $11.00. Most will just skip the aerating at more than that. Of course, my target has been with people who have never had an aeration. Maybe I'll go after some of the better looking lawns.
    I guess that means I haven't done my job educating my clients. Change in game plan.

    Looks good to me. For areation we get about the same price as a mowing job, just for reference.

    Same here. 9 to 11 bucks per 1000. 2 bucks a pound for seed. Nice letter by the way.

    I charge min of 75. 20 of the lawns I areated last year were less than 3k sq feet.
