    Have a potential customer who is looking for a price for an application of Starter Fertilizer to his new yard. How much would you charge per Sq. FT. ?

    Regular price--if he has grass--then it is not a "starter "situation. Use regular turf fertilizer with a high percentage of slow release nitrogen. Be sure to also sign him up for the usual onslaught of weeds at about 8 weeks after seeding
    If he needs starter at the time of seed application-- then whoever seeds it should be responsible for that--and also accept the blame for whatever goes wrong.
