We charge 85 cents per foot for redefining existing beds and $1.25 a foot for brand new.

factors to include:

rake grindings in or haul out
how much can you actually do with machine always a little piece that needs to be done buy hand
rake mulch back edge then rake mulch back down

We always try and talk home owner into using dirt if possible like seeding dead patches from last year then hit them for seeding and materials
or install a raised bed with grindings

I have had trench master for 3 years it has paid for itself every March. April, May,June each year.
