I've read numerous posts on fertilizer pricing and alot of other topics and have found great info. I refrained from posting a while back because I read someone else's post say "just do a search, this is brought up everyday". So I think I've read just about every post on this forum. Now was wondering a few things. I currently work as a property manager for a guy. I do everything you can think of including mow, fert & weed control, any landscaping, anuy irrigation. I also do landscape designs on the side. That being said I was approached by someone the other day that wanted me to put them on a fert program. I told them sure, let me come out and take a look and I'd see if I could do it. I just wanted to see if my prices seemed right or way off. 1) Let me preface by saying that I have virtually no overhead (feel free to correct), my boss said it was ok if I used the spreader so I won't have to go out and buy one. 2) I can get a 50lb. bag of 19-0-11 fert w/pre-m from Lesco for around $19. Bag will cover 12k. Price pre foot=0.001583cent per sq.ft. 3)Cost of fert for yard= $23.28 (sorry, yard is 14,700 sq.ft) 4) I'm coming up with $44.25 per app. Seems way low. I know I left out some intangibles and I may be doing this completely wrong. That's why I figured I'd ask you guys for help. I've read to not compare your prices with trugreens but I called anyway because they are really the only ones around here doing this and they quoted it as $81-86 per app. Mine is almost half that. See my prob. Any help or suggestions would be great. TIA! By the way I do have my apllicators license.
