    New in the business and trying to figure out a pricing scale, looking for a little advice. I would like to be completive but the last thing I want to do is step on good people’s toes. I was thinking about 6.50 per 1000 sqft I don’t want to be high or low ball anybody else can anybody tell me if this is high or low

    You need to figure out your cost per k. Mine on a 7 step program is averaging 1.15 per k per application. No one should be able to answer this question but you. We try to go no lower than 4.5 per k on bigger properties and no less than 7 on smaller for basic fert and squirt.

    $7/K on top of your tailgate drop fee? No way you're charging just $21 per app on a 3k lawn?

    Notice I said averaging. We do have a minimum stop of 45.00 and that covers up to 3k feet. That is a program price for fert and squirt, we charge more if its a one time stop.

    I lied about averaging a 1.15 perk, I went back and looked at my spread sheets and Im averaging 1.33 per k for raw cost of material.
