    More than TruGreen charges, but not out of range.

    Over $25/1000 per year.

    Many people have a hard time swallowing 5. The prices seem OK.

    I quoted a woman $60 to treat her yard. Don't remember the measurements, but the front and back were about even. She said it was too much, and wanted to know how much to only do the front. I told her $45 ($50?). She seemed to think that it should have only been half of the total. I explained that it takes the same drive time, same time unload the equipment, fill the hopper, re-load the truck, write my report, do the billing... to do the front only as it does to do the whole yard.
