    can someone tell me how some lawn care companys are getting 2 x the application price for an application of merit?
    if i have a lawn that i get 150.00 per app. (5 ferts,1 lime)(44,000 sf)how are they getting 300.00 per app of merit?
    it cost me 2.53 per m thats 112.00 per app of merit to treat 44 m.

    What would you charge? Are you charging $150.00?

    $112 is your cost just for product, what about drive time, load time, fuel, payroll, wear & tear, and everything else, what is left for your businesses final profit to pay for that equipment?

    I would be around $275.00 at least.

    I would be charging close to 250 for 44000 sq. ft anyway, and probably up that to 300 for merit. Dave
