Not in my market!!! Big Green treats lawns for less than $2.00 per thousand. I charge $4.00 per k for fert and $8.00 per k for grub control. I offer a premium program as compared to Big Green. Most of my customers are Big Green converts.Originally posted by GLAN
from what your saying. Your making $45 on a 15,000 bag of fert. Or $36 on a 12,000 bag. You can make 3 or 4 times that.
Taking your sqft bag of fert, your cost and formula for the profit. Do the same for the grub control.
Say the 15,000 bag of fert cost you $10. You made $35 on the bag, nothing to say about time to apply and other periferal costs.
Do the math for your grub control. Cost of bag, sqft rate of coverage per bag
Do raise your prices
Well God bless you, if your are turning out those kind of numbers!!! I would be home with ZERO business at those fert. rates!!!Originally posted by GLAN
Lawn apps. is the biggest money maker in this business.
I get on average $10 per thousand for just Fert. I am actualy applying just short for the reason I do 5 apps.

I think it did. Our ex County Exec. Gave them a pay rate increase for votes but then realized he had no chance of winning after he sunk the county into severe debt.Originally posted by Scraper
I thought Suffolk County had the highest paid police. Has that changed?
OK, not to burst your bubble. Your not licensed for pesticidesOriginally posted by greenngrow
I charge 6.00 per K for grub control. This was my first year for Merit. That is the reason for the increase.
I have asked several people of the difference of preventative and curative applications. If they both eliminate the grubs what is the difference?????.
If you know there grubs in a lawn is better to use Merit or Dylox???
I really could not get 8 or even 12 dollars in my area.
I wouldn't personally sell dylox as a preventer. The residual is very short. It's an excellent quick-killing curative, however.....Originally posted by GLAN

The rate of application is different for preventive or curative.
Merit is a preventive product. It's window of effectiveness is months. Dylox is both a preventive and curative. Application target date is at the time just prior or when damage has occured.
