Could someone give me an approximate yearly chemical cost for l&o?
7-8$Sf for the year in NY.
What's an avg. # of accts. serviced daily, avg. size? My general area avg. size yard is 10,000sf, yearly cost w/ this avg. is out the roof at 8$ psf!
Yes $ 8 per square Foot is rather high as a yearly chemical cost. My yearly cost per Thousand square feet is only $ 17.00 For a 6 step program. Now most Fert and Squirt Companies figure their Chemical cost at 25% to 30% of Contract price.
Now I have to ask because of your Question. DO YOU HAVE CERTIFIED LICENSE IN THE STATE OF FLORIDA FOR LAWN AND ORNAMENTAL?????? Unlicensed Pesticide application is a $ 5,000.00 Fine.
$3,000 in Texas....
My response should be per 1000sf.
Ric, you must be including, grub,disease and surface insect control with your regular program.
My 5 app program is right around $9.65 per K, this is for fert,weed,surface,lime.
I am in Zone 10 and you are in Zone 4--5 ??? I don't think we can even begin to compare cost of Applications.
Are you talking about Fert only??? or are you applying Pesticides also??
