    What are some examples of going rates recently?

    Post emergent application per sq ft?

    Pre emergent application per sq ft?

    How much extra do you charge for a basic roundup app; beds + hard walks?

    Any help or other suggestions would be much appreciated, thanks.

    I would price out your own cost of doing biz, that is foolproof.
    Otherwise you are going to want rates for people around you. Me giving you my price/K isn't going to do you much good as I am not in your market.

    That is a good point. I am doing a free application to a family friend and I plan on measuring coverage + costs + labor.

    If you don't mind, humor me with what you charge for a basic post emergent application on a 1/2 acre lot? (Estimate or w/e).

    120.00 for half acre.

    Thanks for your response, do you mean 21,780 SF of lawn surface coverage or a 1/2 acre size property lot?

    Just figure out how much its going to cost you to do the job, then add what you want to make for your time.

    That is horrible advice, please stay out of my threads with inadequate responses.

    I'm not some 1 man crew desperate for business, just inexperienced in herbicide/pesticide pricing.

    How do you price out mulch jobs, mowing jobs, trimming......
    The same way you would price a squirt and fert.
