Two part Question: Price per sq ft and gov. Grants?

help me out a sec guys, I'm starting up an applicators lawn care service. I am missing a major part of info. I am hoping some one here would be kind enough to share how much per sq foot the going rate is. I was think it was $2 or 3 bucks per sq ft. I always use to just estimating per neighborhood.

second part: how many of you guys ever tried for a gov. grant? what are the odds? Would i better off buying a lotto ticket? " Grins "

thanks
SMC

$2 a sq. foot? if you have 1 customer that's all you'll need for the year. Figure a small city lot is 6000 to 8000 sq. feet. Try around $.004 per SF depending on your area.

Thank you...

I know it sounded quirky pertaining to pricing, but i kinda knew it was close to that it may have been me thinking $ 2 or 3 bucks per sq yard.
Thank you!

By "Applicators lawn care service" do you mean fertilizing?
