    Well, after 11 years mowing this is certainly a change. It is kind of strange watching my old equipment and crews cutting grass while I am spraying.
    This is my first month of just spraying and business is taking off. I am trying to stay with smaller,more profitable properties but I have taken a 220Kft condo on.

    One question for all the chemical gurus here. What is your average cost per 1000 for pre-m/post/fert application (just chemicals). How much of that is fertilizer cost. I could price a property for maintenance and make a good profit now I am kinda starting over again.

    I'm sorry, I didn't post my costs.
    Pre-m(diminsion) and 3-way @ $1.40/kft2
    Granualr fertilizer @ 1.01/kft2

    Am I in the ball park?
