    I would like to know how you all are getting the prices you are getting for ferts and weed apps. I quoted a lady $42.00 the other day and I'm higher thanher other guy! that was for 6700 sq. ft. Italked to a guy the other day that told me he had to lower his prices a lot this year to just get any work any help will be appreciated :)
     
  7. Liquid Confront costs me say $0.50 per 1000.......

    I would charge $2.50 per a 1000, but you are way low price wise for that.

    $4 per 1000 for cool season weed applications.

    $8 per 1000 for warm season weed applications.

    ejk, im talking about confront w/fert. te, on a property that is 6700 sq ft, u r applying roughly 25 lbs of product. cost of material is around $13, that leaves you $29. this is if u r using granular, at the price i pay for it. personally, i wouldnt play with chemicals for that price, there is too much involved, licensing, record keeping, the extra insurence, liabilty, etc. i put confront with fert down on an 11 k property just yesterday, got $264 for that application.
