    In my area many of my lawns are between 4000 - 6000 sq ft. My current minimum charge is $35 for an application. After that I have been figuring around $6/1000 sq ft. Do you think that is right in line? I think that I may be on the low side. I recently quoted a lawn for $40 and he was paying $65(though I don't know what it was for).

    I know that on this site noone wants to give out their pricing but I figured I would give it a try. I know that each market is different, but I have done 5 quotes in the past 2 weeks and got all of them. I don't want to leave money on the table so to speak. Any advice from the experts? If you need to PM me.

    You would be leaving a lot on the table in my area. Our minimum is $53.00 up to 6k

    $40 is my min. I am starting to rethink that with fert prices going up.

    i'm in line with you grassmaster, except i can't charge $6 for each additional K. Mine is $35 minimum, $4 per K over 5K, at best.
