    I got a call to come price out fertilizing some property. I measured it it comes to 820,000 square feet.
    I have to figure out what to charge them...
    Any help?

    Feel free to contact me through my websiite for several options. We supply several companies with much more sq. footage than that.
    A bid like this can make or break your company.
    Many details are required to properly price a program for a property this size.

    With organic or alternative products you might want to look at fertilizing the primary areas of usage only. The reason I mention this is 18 acres is a heck of a lot of property to fertilize.

    synthetic products can be 3-5 times cheaper.

    With Organic or Alternative Products You do get a nice deep green look. You are required to fertiilize more often to maintain the color.

    That NY map is impressive. Ohio is way behind. Too much waste being wasted here.

    We have several suppliers of compost in NY and Ohio, and quite a few other States.
    Oh, but we mix it and bag it, then sell it. So according to your old rasta man, it can't be any good! :)

    What's he smokin' anyway? :)
