Pricing seems to vary greatly as to location,size of property and program established. Mine would be 35 for the first 3k and 6.25 up to 12k. Over that it is property dependant but not lower that 3.10.

Like stated earlier, pricing is geographically determined. You should be figuring out what your costs are and what profit margin you hope to acheive. Just because your price is high as compared to some that have listed them doesn't neccessarily make it high for your area or your company. You are handling a hazardous material with specialized equipment plus you have to be certified, recertified, registered and so on prices have to be determined by cost to you and the profit margin you hope to acheive.

getmow...

I think you mean 1ksqft, It depends when I'm spraying and what my concentration of product is, along with which product I'm using. Unless I'm using something like "Sahara" that price covers me for a couple different broadleaf and even MSMA products.

smburgess, I was refferring to 1kft2. My unit and mixtures set at 2 gallons of solution to 1kft2. So for a set up like this would you charge 13.44 per 1kft2? I know the price on the products / applications vary greatly but as an average charge for an application program is this your rate? I am very curious since I am in a market closely related to yours. I am in the Newport News area.
