Most of the applications I do are residential.<br>I charge $40 per 10,000 per application.<br>In the residential market here others charge from $35-$55 per 10,000.<br>I am bidding an manufacturing plant run by one of my customers. 4.5 acres.<br>My question is how do you bid something this large? Same pricing as residential?<br>Thanks for the help

That seems low. Tell me how you arrived at the price. The area will need some weed control.<br>

It is LOW. Until the competition with high-production equipment comes along at $90/acre - INCLUDING weed control. <p>Stone's got it pretty close.<p>If you mow the site hopefully you'll get a little more and with broadleaf weed, you'll be close to $600.00
