When you say "help", do you mean you only did spraying or did you mix or estimate or choose the chemicals or what? If all you did was the application, what do you say to a potential customer that asks about your experience?

Why is the friend getting out of the spray biz? Not making money? If that is the case, how will you make money? You're going to buy his yards? What if the client chooses not to "be bought," do you still have to pay your friend?

Maybe my cynicism will be helpful.
