    Here the going rate is 30 per flat. I add a couple of bucks per week feeding with Miracle Grow to the service contract. That is a loss leader, but makes my installs get me new customers because they do so well. My Impatiens are 18" wide by August doing this. Complete ground cover when fert'd this way.

    Three times all materials. Example flowers 10 flats @ 10.00/flat = 100.000. Osmocote is the fertilizer you all should be using 20.00/bag. Soil amendments 20.00. Total bill 420.00. It should take you two hours and you will have a gross profit of 280.00 if you charge correctly.
