rate for weed kill application...dont want to lowball

wondering what you charge to apply weed killer.
Examples are
stone walks and driveways
tree lines
fence rows

currently charging $18 per gallon one gallon min.
plus $60 per hour rounded up to next quarter.

dont care really if im lowballed on that price because i figured what it cost to make a profit but I would like to make sure that i am charging enough

Don't worry about lowballing if you are covering your costs, including insurance, taxes etc and making the profit you want

what i thought also...
but my landlord had me do some work spraying about the building for him. and said just take it off the rent.

I know prices should of been set but now im in a bind. If im way over the norm then it causes hard feelings way under and he starts expecting things for free.

ready not sending rent at all thats what it cost when I have to look at the crap everyday
