    I'm going through the ropes right now to get me applicators lesson, and wondered if I should just spray or do pellet or maybe both? And is there a rule
    of thumb for bidding??? I'm really excited about starting the application process!

    to get best results, I think you need both.... but then again I'm not a certified applicator, you'd have to talk to someone who is..... My fert customers get 6 apps of dry and two of the apps have liquid weed killer also .
    FYI I do not apply pesticides I sub it out to a licenced contractor....and fellow LS Member! :drinkup:

    Thanks for you input! Is there a rule a thumb for bidding? I have only done one lawn so far and I actually measured the lawn to get the SQ FT. It took a bag and a 1/2 so I charged them for 2-bags of fert and $20 to put it down. The total was $74 and the customer said that tru-green was previously doing it for $52.....
