    Hey Bobby,

    You need to set a minimum price that will be standard for up to what ever size lawn you decide is proper.

    I have a minimum price that does not change until a property is over 6000 ft.

    As far as the program goes, they all get 5 feedings w/ controls applied as needed and during the proper time frames.
    Merit and lime are extra treatments and are sold that way.

    I've seen your posts. Your'e a smart kid. I'm sure you can figure this out.

    Good luck this year,

    Bob

    $35 for $37 per app. depending on what I think the customer is willing to pay. This size lawn is my grey area. This is for pre, post and fert only.
