    Most people who fertilize in florida also offer pest control. If your doing pest control you need a license. Look in to what it takes to get a license in Florida and I bet you'll forget pest control real quick. If you're only gonna offer straight fertilizer, well, good luck!

    Talk to your lesco rep. they have a plan already laid out. not always the best plan, but more than enough to get you started. we usually charge an hourly rate plus 2x cost of material. if it's a flat piece of land with minimal things to go around, i charge $35 and hour, min $15. for hilly obstacle courses i get upwards of $65 an hour. i also do strict lawn consults for $50 plus a soil test.
