    Hey I was wondering what everyone charges per 1,000 sq ft to apply fertilizer. I have a job that is about 15,000 sq ft, residential. Thanks for your help.

    I'm fairly new to fertilizing but i would charge about 25-30+ cost of the fert depending on how open the property is...
    I dunno if i am cheap but i only apply if the client signs up for my yearly program which has 4-6 applications
