    My local lesco dealer said that Drive was just to expensive and recommended having someone come out and spray the crabgrass. How much should I expect to pay for 2000 sq ft?

    expect to pay almost double what they would normally charge since you are a 1-time client.

    would $40-$50 be a safe estimate?

    I think just the cost for the product (in bulk) is around $100. So you'd better hope whoever sprays already has some other lawns to do or you'll be footing at least that much + labor. I think Home Depot sells a homeowner version that you might try & see if it works.

    A one-time application on a minimal sized lawn, I would charge about $49.00

    We charge two dollars per minute for established customers. This is probably too cheap: either they are mowing too short, or they have alot of bare spots.

    Is it the same as Lesco's Drive?
