    I'M STARTING A FERT AND WEED CONTROL BUSINESS IN VA. AND AM TRYING TO COME UP WITH A REASONABLE PRICING GUIDELINE TO BE BOTH COMPETETIVE AND ALLOW FOR A DECENT PROFIT MARGIN. LETS SAY MY 6 STEP PROGRAM HAS 2 LIQUID APPS, 3 GRANULAR + SPOT WEED, AND 1 LIME + SPOT WEED. FACTORING IN THE HIGHER COST OF LIQUID APPS (DIMENSION, ESTER, UREA) WITH THE REST - I AM COMMING UP WITH APROX. $5 / 1000 SF. MATERIALS COST - PROVIDED THE FULL PROGRAM IS DONE.
    EX - A 10,000 SQ LAWN @ 6 APPS = $50 MATERIAL COST PER APP.

    DOES THAT SOUND ABOUT RIGHT? IF SO, HOW MUCH MARGIN ARE YOU GUYS TYPICALLY GOING FOR, ASSUMING MOSTLY FLAT AND EASY TO ACCESS PROPERTY???
    ANY SUGGESTIONS WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED....EXCEPT FROM TG/CL - THOSE GUYS PRICES ARE ALL OVER THE PLACE.

    THANKS.:confused:
