I was out rolling my measuring wheel at a new customers house when up the block strolls a guy putting real pretty flyers in all the doors. The area consists of middle class families and old houses and lots ranging from 4000 to 7000 sq ft. Lots of old folks and starter houses. The company is a multi state larger scale company (not TG/CL). They say they use high quality granular and liquid fertilizer,broadleaf weed control, preemetgent and post emergent crabgrass and annual weed control. They also use preventative grub control and insect control as needed. Completely guaranteed and free callbacks within 72 hours. Here is their pricing: 5 apps to a 4000sq or lower property is 129.00/year 5 apps to > 5000sq to 10K property is 189.00/yr prepay Tree and shrub care 4 application 99.00 for lawns under 4000sq 129.00 for lawns between 5 and 10k I don't know why they do shrub care by the sq ft of lawn. Hers is a killer Aeration 39.00 for lawns under 4000sq tax included 69.00 for lawns between 5 and 10k tax included I know the game but it is hard to have to try and convince potential customers that I am worth more. Sometimes it works and sometime it doesn't. They are working volume and I am working quality. My ace is that I am the Local guy and they are not. I cannot charge a much higher price than them for aeration but I know I have better products and service on my fert program. You have to find the right customers. Good Luck.
