    Hey. I was hoping to get your guys ideas with some prices. How much would you charge for the following:

    14 acres of grass cutting?

    10 acres of fertilizer?

    10 acres of seeding?

    10 acres of aeration?

    Include labor and materials. Or just labor. Any input helps.

    Thanks.

    I'm in zone 9/10.

    Try telling us what kind of grass & is it open field, treed, rough terrain, etc.

    What kind of seed... then read the label for how much you'll need X the price & the time to put it down. Are youdoing a johny Appleseed?

    Aeation... what type of terrain and how much does it cost to rent one and can you do it in a day?

    YOU ARE going to need to do the math on this.

    It is just a huge open playing field. Sports turf grass. No trees or rough terrain. I feel like it would take 10-12 hours to cut. What would be a competitive price for that? What kind of mower would you use? I 50 inch zero turn crazy to use?

    The seed I would be using is Sports turf seed.

    The amount of fertilizer is $2000 bucks worth. I have no idea how much to charge for labor or how long it would take. Take as long as cutting grass?

    Aeration - I have a 4 foot aerator. But that might take a long time to do ten acres. Again no idea how much to charge for labor. Take loner than cutting grass?

    Any advise you have on each job would be awesome. I factor it will take almost 12 hours to do each. What do you think? How long it would take with what equipment? What would be a competitive price for each?

    Thanks.
