Liquid Organic Lawn Spraying

One of our forum members wrote “I have noticed that fewer people are looking for lawn mowing, but the market for lawn health, soil improvement, insect control, and environmentally safe methods is increasing. Homeowners and businesses want this service and many communities are starting to regulate the synthetic fertilizers and pesticides. Children, pet and environmental safety concerns are becoming the public mantra.

Concerns over getting new applicable equipment, application and follow-up make this service an easy sell. Organic liquid lawn health products meet all of the concerns listed. Some of the products on the market are so effective you can see the difference almost overnight. Neighbors are impressed, they see visual In-Your-Face results that open the door for you to them. When you tell them how these results not only improve curb appeal but improve their soil, reduce watering needs, lawn disease control and all with products listed by the EPA and FDA as food stuffs (Save the Planet), sales are easy.

You can control hundreds of lawn insects biologically. No dangerous chemicals or pesticides. It is an easy effective liquid application that is very profitable. They can even be applied when it is raining giving you rainy day jobs. And, when the economy improves and people want their lawns mowed again, you already have your foot in the door.”

When applying this organic liquid fertilizer, is there a limit to the lawn size area you want to spray with a back pack sprayer? Or that you would recommend to others before going to a tow behind sprayer or some sorts?

“I don’t think I will do any area over 5,000 sq. ft. with a backpack sprayer. This doesn’t mean I won’t sell one, just that I would pass it on to a worker, some enclosed lots don’t leave enough room to get a lawn tractor through the gate.

My costs for the organic liquid fertilizer material is about $1.50 per 1,000 sq. ft., I charge $15.00 per 1,000 sq.ft. and $12.00 per 1,000 for labor. I did a job today where I backpack sprayed 15,000 sq ft and another big one - 24,000 sq ft with the tow behind sprayer. The first job took me 7 hours including travel, that’s a gross of about $25.50 per 1,000 or $382.50 ($54.65/hour). The other job was 4 hours including travel to do the same spray job and turned out to be (152.50/hour). 9,000 more sq. ft. in about half the time.

I’m looking for another tow behind sprayer. The reduced body pain will be worth the cost alone.”
