    For landscapes,walks,curbs I use a backpack sprayer. I charge $27.50 a gallon. That's 3.5oz of prosecuter pro,spiked with scythe for a quick burn down. I use an adjustable cone tip, a gallon goes quite a way.

    Depends on what your market will bear. Some folks will say your exspensive, some will not blink an eye and say just do it!

    My I suggest a minimum charge--After that a dollar a minute plus cost of materials.

    Also, if you use equipment, a few dollars per hour to cover the cost and maintenance of equipment. Enough so the equipment is both maintained and paid off before the end of its useful life.
