    I was wondering how much you guys charge per sq ft for fertilizing. Like a 5 step program. Or what program do you guys use.
    Thanks,

    I usually charge about $4.00 per 1,000 sq ft for fert, $4.00 per 1,000 sq ft for pesticide apps, and $10.00 per 1,000 sq ft for core areation. If you will be apply pesticide (i.e. weed & feed) you need to be certified. Contact your local Dept of Ag to get more info.

    I get $44.00 for 5k and $59.00 for 10k per step on my 6 step program. I get $15 per k for aeration. Charge top dollar for top service and you can't go wrong. Just make sure you do your homework first.
