    I would get 30% margin on fert. $24 divided by .7 equals $34 then add $20 labor, total 55$. $30 gross profit.

    Try contacting your local ag. extension station or whatever they call you dept. of environmental protection. Your local Lesco can probably answer that too.

    What size is the property? Without that information your pricing help request cannot be answered
