overrated

I have gotten prices from my lesco dealer before and there was never a price this insane. He was not the guy I normally talk to.
He clams it to do with the natural gas prices. Now i know this varys from state to state but has anyone ever paid $27.45 for a bag of Momentum spreads 13,500 sq ft. If i were applying this and spot spraying it would run me about 2.33 per thousand.

Thanks
Jim

I do understand that natural gas is to make the fertilizer before any of you guys lecture me on fertilizer and natural gas.

Thanks

overrated,
3 years ago I purchased any type of fertilizer for around 15.00 a 50# bag. Last year it jumped up to 29.00 a bag. This is straight fertilizers.......unbalanced of course, but I have seen the combination products soaring this season. The more people are demanding it..........the costs will stay in the ranking.
I don't like things any more than you do but if all i was paying is 2.33 per K on my liquid mixtures, consider it a blessing. I am one of many this is forced to raise my cost or go under.

Don't use weed and feed. Straight fert plus the liquid version works quite well.

Overrated,

How many bags of Momentum W&F were you looking for? Also, how much do you spend annually with JDL? I'm not asking to be rude but quantities play a big role in price. I have no idea how much you spend (it could be $100k or more for all I know) but if you buy less than a pallet per round and were only looking for a couple bags, the price you were given sounds about right.

Next question: Why are you looking for Weed & Feed during the first week of April? I suppose your situation in Ohio could be different from mine in NY, but if broadleafs are just starting to pop but aren't really actively growing the way they would be in May, it's probably a waste of money and chemical to spread Momentum across entire lawns. Instead, I'd suggest focusing on a fertilizer with pre-emergent and just spot-spraying broadleafs if you really need to.

or $35 / bag - JW, the customers here are hollering about the dandies poping up - try to tell them its due to the early high temps and such but they just want them gone.

Lesco now JDlandscapes sucks. I wanted to buy a 1/2 pallet over the phone and would not give me a price. Screw them. Been a customer for 9 years and no more. Gone to Southern States now.
