    It seems to be a rather bad nutsedge season this year:cry:
    I just wanted to see if you charge for an extra service to control it or do you include it in your regular program.

    if its just a spot here and there I don't charge (but probably should) if it was a large area I would charge $10 per K with a $25 min.

    I have in my contracts that small outbreaks are included in my program. Larger outbreaks I will treat and charge accordingly.

    anything other than regular service constitutes another charge.

    Separate Charge. I offer broad leaf weed control and pre emergent crabgrass control. It's nothing personal just business.

    I added an extra application for summer time weeds, such as nutsedge, crabgrass, etc. Most of our customers pay 12 mos. a year or are level pays so I average it out. Works great.

    Two years ago I had a call from a customer about nutsedge. I went and looked at the lawn and it was loaded w/ nutsedge. I told them I would be happy to spray w/ Manage for an extra charge. They said to hold off that they would get back to me. They called a couple days later and cancelled sevice. I called them and asked why??? They said that they contacted TGCL and they offer nutsedge control as part of their regular program. So I lost that one. I don't know what TGCL sprayed the lawn with, but I'll be damned if I'll treat an acre lawn for nutsedge at no extra charge.
