    Generally I charge a $50 min or 5-6 per 1000 which ever is greater. All of my work is residential. Just curious where your price breaks were? 1 - 10k $6 per 1000, 10k - 20k $5 per 1000 2, 20k + $4 per 1000

    Mine too.

    We should live in New Jersey, Houston or Oklahomo. Guys here claim they get 400 to treat an acre sized lawn.

    We are somewhat the same on smaller lawns.

    I don't truely price break until they get over an acre!

    After an acre I will start to drop my price/k.

    If they are over 5 acre I will drop it a little more...but it also depends on if it is an open area or lots of obstacles.

    Yes,...please DO explain the more usage than us. Are you at around 3000 accounts or something, or did I read this wrong? :walking:

    Can't speak for Natty, but I interpreted his comments because of his name that using organic/bridge products usually means a lower analysis fert, therefore needing more lbs/1000 to get to desired rates??

    If I used 18-0-9 and you used 30-0-10 and we both applied 1lb N/1000 I would have used "more" fert than you... I have a hunch that's all that Natty was saying.
