    how do you guys charge when spraying a non-selective herbicide product like Touchdown on fence lines? I spray some places for our mowing contracts but I have never cahrged for this. Do you charge a flat fee, or per gal(or other unit of measure), per linear ft, etc..:weightlifter:

    i charge by the linear foot - my rate depends on how over grown the fence is. the first fence line i quoted i under estimated the amount of material. i had based my estimate on the square footage of ground i was treating, the weeds were up the fence about 3 feet so by the time sprayed 3 feet up for 3000 feet i used more chemical then i estimated.
