I wanted to know what is the average rate charged for fertilizing. It probably varies depending on where you live. I live in the Seattle area. And whatever your rate is does it include the fertilizer. I want a good standard rate I can tell my customers.

Where do you get your fertilizer from? I don't want to get it from the chain home improvement stores. I hate going in those stores.

I figured one way I can keep mowing longer and more often into the season is by fertilizing my customer's lawns. Since some of them are already slowing down. Just thought of this today becuase the lawns that I do fertilize are still growing good. This is probably lawn care business common sense but I am still new.

Thanks for your help.
