Average price I have foud for a 5000 sq ft lawn is around $45 bucks per app.

I believe a better way to do it is to have a stop fee of around $30 and then go $3 to $5 per 1000 on top of that.

With this method a 5000 sq ft yard would be ($4 per 1000 plus 30) $50
Your method would also be $50

But when you get to higher sq ft this is what would happen:
With this method a 10000 sq ft yard would be ($4 per 1000 plus 30) $70
Your method would also be $100

That is a big difference. So find your cost for just showing up and then throw an extra $10 on to that and that should be your stop fee. Then figure out the cost of chemicals (plus a small mark up) per 1000 and add on a buck or two on top of that per 1000 sq ft.

The bigger the lawn-the less you should charge per 1000. It takes less time to spray one 10000 sq ft lawn vs two 5000 sq ft lawns
