Pricing and chenicals for Yearly Lawn treatment?

My son has been in the lawn care business for 7 years. All residential accounts. He is considering starting a separate business spraying lawns as 80% of his customers use Tru-Green, Weed Man or some service. His customers have agreed to switch to him if he decides to start. He has completed classes and obtained the state required license (NC). He is looking at a 200 gal. Lesco spray rig. He needs advice on pricing and chemicals. WHat to spray when and any advice would be appreciated. Thanks!

Show him to the pesticide forum. His biggest hurdle will be dealing with transition zone grasses. Cool season and warm season grasses are treated two completely different ways. You can easily fry a lawn using the wrong chem package. If he is lucky everybody is Fescue or KBG. Vastily easier and cheaper to treat and make money.
