    I'm sure that this has been posted before:
    I'm adding tree and shrub spraying to my list of services and would like to come up with an easier way of pricing the service for bids.
    I like the idea of 'sizeing' the trees and shrubs, eg. Lg med and sm. and asigning a price that way. How many gallons used are typical for differing sizes? what/how do you charge?
    Anybody use micro-injection?

    First calibrate your sprayer.......
    (use water)

    Right, I understand calibration and as soon as I don't need to worry about freezing and busting my pump or line I'll do that.
    I was just looking for some advice/experience from someone to give me an idea of what to expect when performing this service, etc.

    :( Hey, don't jump on my case....:(

    I was going to tell you that your calibration is related to your cost per ap.:D
    Since you have a bad attitude....:(
    I'll tell you this: Casron is best applied to lawns in the early spring.....;) It'll keep the weeds out!
    Good Luck!!!:)

    Sorry groundsguy, bad habit of mine. I misunderstood the "tone" of your first post.
    I appreciate any knowledge that you'd like to share.
    What is Casron, and why do I apply it to lawns?
