    Do any of you guys offer any kind of fertilizer package to your customers? If so how do you charge, flat fee to by the square ft? Also how often do you fertilize, once a month, every other month?

    I sub all my work out o TruGreen. I know there prices and just mark it up. It is based oin square footage of the area being treated. Generally my customers sign up for 4 or 5 treatments. You can get the information regarding what happens at what time from your sub.

    Develop your own program and keep all of the mark-up!! Local chemical providers or even some of the maunfacturers can help you out. We sell seven applications per year here in God's country (Charleston, SC) and include bonuses the big boys don't, like biostimulants in each application. See what the competitors are charging, and remeber sell your SERVICE, not your price.
