    Well, I wake up this morning, and I notice a flyer on my front-door. I look at it, and see these prices. :realmad: Are these prices cheap, or am I to high?

    $50 to rake and bag per 1000 sq ft. That seems high too me.So if the yard is 5,000 sq ft it will cost $250.

    Yeah, most of the rates seem pretty high for per/1000K, except the overseeding seems out of line compared to aeration or dethatching prices. Seed and starter fert should be figured in to be at least higher than the aeration price. Other than that, I think the prices are a come on... really, try to get him to come over and just aerate 1,000 sq.ft. rope it and stake it off for him and say thats the spot and see what happens. LOL.

    Fertilizing at 10 per 1K is not cheap here. I wish I could get that I would quit mowing.
    The presentation looks a little cheesy with rates for front and backyards, what the heck is the difference? Does fertilizer cost more in the backyard?

    I can see some people call just because they are price shoppers and they see a low number but the final price will turn them away.

    Prices look good! 1000 sq ft is only 32'x32'. That would take 5 minutes with a 21" at the most, or $180 per hour.

    Raking $50, that would take about 15 minutes with heavy leafs.

    $10 for fertilizer, what kind of fertilizer? Most, 5 lbs would cover it and about 5 minutes of work.
