This will be moved shortly. It all depends on your market. Here average is $175 per acre for large lots. Most res. are in the $25 to $40 range.

I charge .0045 / sq ft / chemical.

For example, if I do a broadleaf control with a fertilizer, it's .009 / sq ft.

Minimum charge of $50.

why 2 different prices?
.009 = $392.04
.0045 = $196.02
for a 1 acre property

The different prices.

Say someone wants just a broadleaf application done, they do their own fertliizing.

OR say someone just wants fertilizer done.

And I'm sorry... should have been an extra "0" in those.

So, the different prices, or say you add in some insecticide or fungicide, it'd be another .00045 for the additional chemical.

Select a dollar amount per 1000 square feet and select a minumum amount. For example $30 for anything 5k or less and $6 for each additional 1k. These numbers obviously could be skewed on large accounts. (10 acres or something) Hope this helps.

We start out with a minumum of $30, then after about 6000 sq ft the rate card goes up about $2 per 1000 (keep in mind this doesn't mean you're charging $2 per 1000 because you already have $30 to start. Over 50,000 it's usually $3 per 1000.
We have a lot of customers who are paying $60 minimum because they get aeration, seeding, fungicide, grub control....a premium program like that, you can make some serious money on!

All depends on your sq. ftage you're dealing with. Sounds like alot of work for $60.

Now if you're talking about $60 / app or round, and it's 5 rounds, so it's $300, then yes, that's decent money for 5-7 k worth of work.

Yes! $60 minumum per round ($10 per 1000)
But...the additives are only when needed! Sort of like insurance.
