    Forgot to mention its Tall Fescue lawn being sprayed at around 1.5 oz. per 1K sq. ft. Lawn is approx. 23-26% weeds very scattered. Suggest I guess a carpet app or 3-way what do you guys think it should go for on this app?

    I have never done a carpet app before. Im kinda anal I worry that it wont kill off ALL weeds and the customer will be calling me back to come do a second app. to clean up the weeds I didnt get. Ill be using a tow behind tank sprayer with a 25 gallong tank and a 40" boom sprayer.

    Bunton,

    $50 sounds about right for spraying that lawn.

    As far as the concern about not killing all the weeds and having to retreat, add a spreader sticker to your mix. It's inexpensive and you'll get much better results using it.
