    Hello Gentlemen,

    I need some ideas on how to price a stand alone application of Pre-Emergents in an established planter/ornamental bed. I am trying to work up a price list on 5 step and how or if to price break the beds if purchased with the 5 step. I was thinking of having a minimum to show up and then having a set price for less than 100sq and another break for over 100sq. Do any of you know how much CH*&^ lawn is getting for there 5 step and spot apps?

    Do any of you just throw the beds in with the 5 step?

    Thanks in advance, you guys are awesome!

    No I dont throw in the beds with a 5 step.
    I dont throw in anything myself.
    I do offer bed sprays however and I charge per thousand sqft.
    It is pretty simple.
    Just know your costs. Add in for difficulty (Time is money after all) and its as easy as that.
    Depending on your zone and the product you use should determine the number of apps per year.
