    I was curious to see how many applications of fertilizer and weed control you propose to NEW residential customers as a package, and your price points.

    On an "average condition" yard 7k, I would assume:
    4 applications fert @$45,
    2 app. of weed control @$35.
    Aeration $89
    Overseed $50
    Does $389 seem right?

    If a NEW customer wanted a bid from your company how would you set up your prices?

    Thanks in advance!

    I'm with Dusty, you should charge a little more for your cultural services. The fert price is ok (on the low side) payup

    I agree about charging more, but I would also charge the same on all six treatments for weed control or fertilizer. I charge double the app price for aeration and grub control and over-seeding.

    Charge the same for all applications, otherwise it just confuses the clients. My average account is about 5,500 sq ft. I do 6 applications at $42 each. Aerations go cheap here, I charge $35 and I am high, barely competitive. I would get maybe $45-50 for a 7k lawn.
