Hi,
By the pix shown you prob have about a acre so I'm not using any commercial chemicals we are strictly ORGANIC I would charge about $225 - $250 per application, make sure you check with your local and states regulations on applicators, here if you charge for ANY type of application you MUST be certified as a Applicator. If you get caught here applying anything on a lawn and charging the customer for it you can be fined up to $10,000.00 they don't play here. Be safe save your business and all you have worked for and check with the state if you don't know the answers to applicators certifications.

Good Luck
Tim
Thx

Im still lookng for answers on being cerified in Pa

Do you need a license to apply seed or just seed with pesticides?

Most States require an applicator license for any herbicide and or pesticides that are commercialy applied, what that means is if you spray it or drop it and are being paid for those service you MUST be a certified applicator if your state requires it (plan seed is not included) all you need to do to find out is call your states Department of Agriculture they will be happy to answer this question. Organic applies to these rules also, yeah your right it doesnt make sense but that is just how it is.

Good Luck
Tim
