Hometown,this is a great question that us new applicators need to learn,pricing.I hope others will help here as well.I met a guy in my area that has been a great help to me,we are not in the same market but close enough to share information and have become friends,Thanks Mark...As far as 15,000 sq ft....43.00 to 46.00 would be a fair price.Hope this helps.JRB...also this may be an "area & market thing" try to get information from somone around you.

Market wise-across the pond to the west of you I sell a program that is 4 aps granular (plus 1 ap of liquid herbicide spot treat included)for 5.00 per 1000 sq ft. So the 10K sq ft lawn is 50 per ap x 4.
I charge around 6.00 per 1k for single aps without a program. Good Luck
