    wondering what you charge to apply weed killer.
    Examples are
    stone walks and driveways
    tree lines
    fence rows

    currently charging $18 per gallon one gallon min.
    plus $60 per hour rounded up to next quarter.

    dont care really if im lowballed on that price because i figured what it cost to make a profit but I would like to make sure that i am charging enough

    Don't worry about lowballing if you are covering your costs, including insurance, taxes etc and making the profit you want

    what i thought also...
    but my landlord had me do some work spraying about the building for him. and said just take it off the rent.

    I know prices should of been set but now im in a bind. If im way over the norm then it causes hard feelings way under and he starts expecting things for free.

    ready not sending rent at all thats what it cost when I have to look at the crap everyday
