    New to the fertilization. Is there an approximate competitive price guide to go off. I'm guessing a price per 1000 would be easiest.

    Plain Fert
    Pre-e
    Grub and insects

    Any info would be appreciated.

    if you want to be basic as possible do this.

    $40 to startfor the first 1,000 sq/ft
    $4 each additional 1,000 sq/ft

    ex: 8,000 sq/ft lawn = $68

    Grub Prices are double the price of an app if fert is involved include it

    ex 8,000 sq/ft = $68 for the fert $136 for the grub = $204 for the app

    grub curative $136

    Pre-M charge the same as regular fert.

    Depending on your market, the $40 might be high, but I do agree with the double price for grub, and same price for pre-m. There was a time when companies broke down price per app. i.e. R1 was more than R2, and R4, which were more than R3 and R5, but I think that's gone by the wayside. Keep it simple. Do a search in this forum-maybe "pricing," "cost," or "price" and see what you get. There's a wealth of info. on this topic.
