Pricing on Monthly Maintenance, Chemicals, Thatching, Aeration, CLean ups

Hey guy I have been in the business about 3 years now. I have my business growing but still dont think that I am making as much of a profit as I should. How do you guys come up with your monthly maintenance prices? How much do you look to make off a bag of 20-0-8 that costs me 25 dollars? Thatching costs? HELP!! I would like to try to do this by square foot. I have all the square feet of my houses I just dont know how much to charge for each!!

Thanks,

Ken

You first have to know what YOUR cost is

Then you have to know what the competition charges. Then you will know if you can compete or have to modify your model.
