    When fertilizing, should I charge additional? Also what fertilizers are good? And is granular or liquid better?

    Sorry, but sometimes it is just too simple of a question

    OK --- In many states you can drop fertilizer without a Pest Lic. but most of the time if you are dropping fert. than the customer wants FULL lawncare and you need a lic. for that

    Always charge for what you do-- never give away anything
    For a new guy the granular stuff will be the best way to go. Cheaper to buy-- cheaper to spread, NO TANK-- and slow release.
    Please learn about TOTAL lawncare before doing any of it- Start out with just maintenance.

    Again sorry about the 1st answer but you did ask if you should give free stuff??
