    Market wise-across the pond to the west of you I sell a program that is 4 aps granular (plus 1 ap of liquid herbicide spot treat included)for 5.00 per 1000 sq ft. So the 10K sq ft lawn is 50 per ap x 4.
    I charge around 6.00 per 1k for single aps without a program. Good Luck

    comes to about 3.00 a 1,000 sq ft

    15,000 sq ft would be $45.00
