What is your growing zone and approx application schedule?
Assuming your working with cool season grass do your clients often want to skip out on the heavy Fall application of nitrogen as per the Turf research universities and extension offices?
Are you using slow release synthetic products or fast release quick green up APS.

Yes, we as of now bill out per app. Some customers pay early, before the season starts. I like when that happens.
April or May is when we try and get the pre-emerg down, depending on the year. Sometimes we even spray for weeds with that first app, if the weeds are growing of course. Second app is around June, third is july or august, and fourth is september or october, with an app of spray again.
Usually the customers just let us do our thing for the season. We lighten up the fall app a bit sometimes tho, depending on circumstance. I would actually like to find a fert with less nitrogen for fall, but haven't yet.
We are using 50% slow release minimum. Most likely a poly coated product.
