Get a call from a guy 2 weeks ago wanting lawn care treatments.
Lawn is 1 acre, in really poor shape no color and full of weeds. Hit it heavy with fert. 7 days ago ago and turn up today to hit the acre of weeds. Scotts LS had been there 30 mins before. Invoice $42.40

Notes said ............Lawn has excellent color and todays treatment will kill the weeds. ......................Guess they were spraying water the other 4 apps.

Tryng to get hold of Mr. to find out what the deal is.

will be interested to hear the answer to this, but I'll venture a guess.
A) Mr. contacted you, Mrs. called (by) Scotts'...oops
B) The weeds were not dying from the fert application, so they called them out behind you
C) unauthorized app

We had rain for two days ........ rain = fert apps. $$$$$ ..AND I wanted to hit it heavy with UREA without risk of burning.
(Don't need the lecture about UREA)

it has been too windy to spray.

Mr. contacted me
Mrs. was on Scotts Invoice.

42 dollars for an acre? I must be missing something. OK I guess if is just water then they are charging for time on the job towing a hose but even then 42 is cheap.
I only use granular fert so there is no possible way I can compete, it cost me more than that in materials alone. I get more than 42 for a 7000 sq ft city lot.

Scotts gave my parents a price quote of $160.00 for their 1acre lot. Must be huge price fluctuation from state to state.

It always depends on the foo...uh...sales person that day. $42.00 will buy you maybe 3000ft if I'm in a good mood and its an easy pull.
