2.5 gal momentoum cost??? 100.00
flags= 245 flags 20.00
total cost $555.00

what is the est.time per application?( that ones for you lazer)

when i flag my state says at each enterence/walk way. (i never see that many flags).

i was asked to bid on this just for the applications and the billing is through the cutting company,that i know nothing about. thats the part i donot like.

Adding is off by $100.00 should be $555. instead of 455.oo
I would charge in my area $3.00 To 3.25 per 1,000 total
$735.00 to $796.00 This for me would be my min. charge

My info here is so valueable, I should be charging for it:

245,000 = 3-3.5 hours.

Pre-M fertilizer = 240.00
34-0-11 25% SCU = 120.00
2.5 gal 2,4-D w/ a little Confront = 50.00
Flags = 20.00

Total materials = 430.00

6-7 man/hours for BOTH applications.

6-7 hours x 100.00/hour = 6-700.00 + 430.00 materials = 1030.00-1130.00.

-- Hey! not far too off from yours, but you're using better materials (50% SCU)

Anthony,
The flagging law in NJ for multi resident dwelling says you must put flags "in such a manner that they are clearly legible from all prinipal access points of the treated property" This is why you don't see flags at every walkway. You only need to put them at the main entrances to the property. Just make sure the other notification paperwork has been done correctly.

Ok I will play.

Materials for both apps $430.

Two apps at 5 man hours per app includes clean up time at
$25/hour for labor and equipment costs=$250

Total cost $680.

The next question is how much do you want the job and what is the competition in the local market. This will determine what gross profit margin to apply to the cost.

30% GPM is bare min if you want the job bad=$975.

40% GPM is good when there is some competition=$1135.

50% GPM is good when there is no competition=$1360.

Now grasshopper take the pebble from my hand.

When the Lazer and the Stone agree, LOOK OUT, you CANNOT go wrong.

It's like when all light colors come together to form a pure white light.
