I have a little different school of thought on this then some people here. My opinion is that wide open areas I will give some discount to not a lot but some. A lot of people will tell you your material cost is the same and it is however I apply with a ride on and can make awesome time with open areas. This will come down to how you apply if it is tank and hose large area is going to catch up to you fast.

I do a lot of apartments and condos in my area my advice is be careful with these. A lot of mine are subbed to me. They can be vary cut up and a lot of curbs to jump. Also some of my bigger ones I carry one guy with me to bring me bags and blow the side walks off. One thing I did learn from doing these is to keep my smaller hand spreader in the fert hopper for islands and small areas.
