What is everyone using for fertilizer apps?

I have sourced many different nutrient forms and release mechanisms for my applications this year. I have one synthetic with two N sources, two organics with a number of different natural sources and I am kicking that with a splash of Fe and Micros on every app. I am planning to charge $8-9/K depending on size of the property. What are you guys charging /K and what are you using?

Ya, 3/4 lb. Im not real big right now but Im happy to do a 15000 for $80-$90. Which is between $5-$6/k. I get them all day long at that price and people are happy to pay it. Pretty decent profit to me considering it only takes one bag.

$6-$7 per k here but that won't mean anything to anyone but myself.

Why? 7 for smaller lawns and 6 for larger lawns?

I don't mow, just fert, squirt, aeration, seed, insecticides, and minor landscaping. I go lower the bigger it gets to help the customer out. If they are getting a good deal they are more likely to sign up for more services such as aerations and seedings. I look at how much money I can get yearly from them rather than per service. It works out pretty well for me but might not for you depending on your situation.
