    I have a good idea on how I am going to bid my prices on mowing, but how should I price for fertilizing. Sorry if this has been covered. I'm new to this site. Thanks in advance.

    Materials + Labor = Cost

    Fertilizer = $25 (covers 12,000 sq ft)
    Labor = $ ?

    Just depends on how much you're worth.

    I charge my cost of fertilizer plus $30.00 to $50.00 to apply it depending on size of yard. It doesn't take long with a good quality broadcast spreader. I don't have that many customers who want this service. They mostly just want their grass cut as least often as possible for as little as possible.
