i have a new client. his property is 2700 sq ft of turf. i priced a crabgrass control, a post weed app, and 2 ferts at $175. he showed me what he paid the last company. it was fert program only. 2700 sq ft. $100 a month, FOR 7 MONTHS! and the place looked horrible

Seems reasonable. How did you arrive at that amount? Do you have a minimum stop fee and then so much per 1,000 sf.?

nope, i just wing it. now, if the person seems like they have a brain, i price competatively. if the customer is elderly, or stupid, i jack up the price. for this particular client. i will visit the site 2 times. once for crab(that contains fert) so this is one crab and one fert. then again for weed n feed(this is weed, and fert). this totals the entire program. 2 ferts, and 2 herbs. it's about $8 worth of product and 20 min total labor.

Where you the guy who stole the foul ball from that little 6 year old boy on the June 15th baseball game that I saw on TV?

Hey Bobby, your made up stories have ticked off people when your talking about taking advantage of people and especially elderly.

Looks like you hit your low mark of how far you can go with made up stories.
