Smallaxe - Since in theory one blanket app should take care of most weeds along with proper maintenance, how might I go about setting that up on a proposal? If I "quote" for blanket apps for both fall and spring, I feel like my bids will be considerably higher than others. Any suggestions?

My two cents it the client does not really care if it is a blanket or spot treatment.
It take time to get a yard into the condition where spot are needed. When that time comes you do it to save money and use less herbicides.

The client wants the problem solved for a fair price. They do not need those kinds of details in your quote

Do not sell price, sell quality lawn
