Charge for fert ???

I have an account that I just picked up, about an acre and a half.
They want to go with the Scotts 4 step program, and they will also be a weekly cut for me. How should I charge for the fert. applications. I was thinking of charging my hourly rate and than adding like an extra $15 an hour to cover my equipment cost plus the price of the ferts.

Thanks for any and all help

Jim

Markup the material to cover transport and schlepping time then add your hourly rate to apply.
That would all be around $180 per app for me using Lesco materials.

What's with this Scott's 4-step program? Your idea or theirs?
Unless your buying from a landscaping supplier you're going to pay for that stuff big time.
Are you licensed to apply pesticides? At least one of those apps will surely fall into that category.

Just stuff to think about.

I'll be the bag guy this time.

Jim,
Are you licensed to apply pesticides commercially in your state?
