It depends on how you erased it .. and what you've done since.

DataRescue II is one of the best data recovery tools out there.

It will scan and report what data is recoverable and you can then buy it .. if you see what you want to recover.

It is not a MAGIC solution.  If you erased the entire HD of the Mac which contained the system OSX folder etc.  You will probably NOT be able to recover a bootable mac.  Instead focus on recovering your documents and data ... and re-install a clean OSX from the original DVD.
