    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.

    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.


    Dan

    Are you talking about Fert only??? or are you applying Pesticides also??
