    I am a licensed Oklahoma sprayer and a bit to everything. I have worked with a buddy for quite some time and now heading out on my own. We charged $10.00 per 1000 sq. ft. it was a small town so we were the only one’s spraying. We didn’t have any competition to worry about. After looking at other prices I think that is too high in the OKC area. Any advice would be appreciated.

    Yes that is high to a degree. If it is a 5000 sf. ft. lawn no, but if it is 10,000 feet then your way high. That would put an acre at $430.00. I would love to see that happen. I honestly dont think you would win many bid's. I think most LCO's around here have a graduating cost. Just play numbers here!!!!!!!!!! But something like this.

    0-5000 sq ft $15.00/1000
    5000 sq ft - 7000 sq ft $14.00/1000
    7000 - 9000 $13.00/1000
    9000 - 10000 $12.00/1000
    10000 - 11000 $11.00/1000
    And so on until its your bottom lowest price, and still your profit margin you want per 1000.

    The only thing I used to get hung up on was if I had (I don't) a minimum of lets say $60.00 then a 2000 sq ft yard is the same as as the neighbors 10000 sq ft yard if I were at $6.00/1000. You sure the heck would want more small lawn's than larger ones it pricing everyone at a set amount per 1000.
