    I have a lawn that is 110,000 square feet. Massive grub problem. You think $675 is a fair price?

    For what. Dylox?

    Product cost for me would be about 450 to do 110K

    My price for dylox is 10/1000 but for a job that size theres room for adjustment.

    800 or 850 would be a better price.

    Youll also be selling them another one in the spring, yes?

    Correct to all the questions. Yeah, I thought it was a little low.

    I agree, 800-850 would be better. Chances are she might freak out at the price, so what you might do, and I've done this in the past, is to be proactive and show her how much it would be to repair any damage if she chose not to take the grub control app.

    850/110 = 7.73/1000
    App of Dylox, aeration, seed, and fert. - 10+25+7=42/1000 (just threw in some numbers for those)

    Cheap insurance policy if you ask me.

    Also explain the benfit of merit or mach 2 for next season. Dam near as cost effective to apply grub with fert as it is for Dylox alone
