    I am not sure what to tell you to charge but whatever you come up with charge more. It never failt that you end up spending more time or money on a project. Don't be afraid to cushion your pockets just in case things don't go as planned. If all goes great you will end up with a little more money in your mutual fund.

    Good Luck.

    I just need an idea of JUST 2 weed control apps in the flower beds which total 2900sqf. and include weekly spot treatments. I just included what the beds had so you could decide which chem. app was best.

    Check the coverage and price on a product like preen,
    add several sprayers full of a safe broadleaf and grassy leaf Herbicide add the ttl cost of product, then triple the amount..that is what you charge
    My best attempt
