    Yes I know this has been addressed in the past, but I would like to take a poll on what your estimating procedures are on fertilizing. <br>Examples: Do you have a minumum bid? Do you have a one time charge for all apllications? Do you charge per application. Most importantly, what is your charge per 5000 sq. ft. + whatever fee you may have in addition to that if any. Thank you to all who can help me, after all that's what this site if for right?
