Price for granular weed and feed

Hi All. I have a question thats probably been asked a few times. This is the second year of my business, in my area a 5000-6000sq ft lawn goes for $30-35 per cut. I'm going to spread granular weed and feed for several of my customers and want to know how much to charge. Price per bag that covers 5000 sq ft is 24 bucks. Is $60 about right??

granular doesnt work worth crap. subcontract it out like i do until i get my liscence next spring. in the meantime learn a crapload so you will make alot of money once you get liscenced.

I may be wrong but didn't Ontario just ban the cosmetic use of pesticides??? If you have 24 bucks in material into a 5k lawn, plus your time and overhead you are in trouble to start. You are paying way to much for the material alone. Companies around here would get 35 to 40 dollars for a 5k lawn. Of course your customers will tell you if your charging to much.
