    wow, am i high. i'm very, very high. i am landing some work though. we reworked our formula for pricing this service, but i'm still alot higher than all of you. i did a quote the other day. this ladies property was 7k. i quoted her $462. she showed me what she had been paying. she was using a big commercial outfit for years. their program included a standard program, plus fungicide(as needed), aeration(as needed) overseeding(as needed). they charged her $780 per season. the key thing to this program was the "as needed". i asked her if they did in fact aerate, she said they did once in the last 3 years. i asked if they did in fact overseed, she said once, with the aeration. i asked her if they did in fact apply fungicides, she said never. so this company charged her $780 for the standard program, with the understanding that the "as needed" services were there as an insurence that if she needed it, it would be included at no extra fee. but, if she didn't need it, the fee stayed the same. alot balls if you ask me. they were outright ripping her off, in my opinion. my prices may be high, but they get everything they pay for. by the way, on a 10k property, our price is $660. prepay is required, at no discount. i may be too high. i am currently carrying about 20 fert customers, i need to get that number to about 30. i may be a bit high. thanx for bidding guys
