    charge your hourly rate plus whatever equipment costs you have. For residentials I usually charge 2-3 times the regular mowing price.

    No less than $275. Walk away if they don't go for it.

    My going rate for aerating is $.01 per square foot. In other words $10 per 1000 square feet. Good luck.

    have you thought about charging square feet, instead of doing the hourly? Yes, its nice to know the hourly to see whether your square feet rate is what you want
