View Full Version : JUST got the License yesterday in the Mail

The license came in the mail yesterday. My partner and I are planning to do 3 and 5 step program. The 3 step is only weed control and the 5 step includes fert. My question is how to exactly bid the yards.

some say $20 plus $3/4 per 1000

any ideas, because we are passing out fliers and sending out letters to our old mowing customers this week.

We charge $35 for 5000k and under. Then have scale that adds about $1 per 1000ft2 after that. An acre is $140- $165.

Congratulations on getting your license. You probably already know this but the card you received is not all you need. You also need to get a couple of licenses for your business. You need a fertilizer applicators license and a fertilizer registery license. Just want to make sure you don't have any problems later on. How did the bids you had questions on come out?
