    Need help on what to charge on fertilizer application. I've got about 1.5 acres to fertilize. There are some weeds but mostly like a wild onion type weed to get rid of. Goal is to have a lush green lawn. I don't do much fertilizer applications so I need help on what you all suggest as far as what to put down and how much to charge. It's fairly hilly and will be pushing with push spreader unless I can rent a rider.

    Not trying to be a smart@#$....It's just ...you need to be licensed to do that kind of work. You could get in trouble otherwise

    In GA you do not need to be licensed to spred ferterlizer or ph adjusters. Cat 24 is only required for control or supression of a pest. A pest beying any plant or insect which detracts from the value of the property. What to charge? I don't know what to charge in your market but try around $25 + $3 per 1000 sq ft.

    You might want to check with your county extension agent about what the law in your part of the woods is.
