I was wondering the same thing? lol

I don't know about pricing it yet, I'm in florida & looking to get my licence too, I just want to be able to use seed, fertilizer, & weed control, I suppose general lawn pest control would be good too. I haven't really looked into it much.... Anybody know the process to apply & et your licence in the state? Where to take tests etc.?

I charge $12 per 1000 sqft.
Maybe you could practice on your own yard how long it takes you to cover a certain amount of sqft. Time your self and figure out how much you have used. Factor anything else you need into it and come up with a price per 1000 sqft. like I did.

Yes it is. I get mine from a co-op supply store for $17 per 50lb bag.
